Show Us Your Library Card, Buena Park!

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the Buena Park Library District wants to make sure that you and your child are among the two-thirds of Americans that carry the smartest card of all – a library card.

In honor of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, some local businesses are offering discounts and other perks if you flash your library card during the month of September.

“It’s a great way to promote library card sign-up month and give local businesses an opportunity to show their support for reading and education in our community,” said Library Director Louise Mazerov. Visit the Buena Park Library and its website for a list of participating businesses.

Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

The Buena Park Library has books, magazines, DVD’s, Videos, CD’s, Audiobooks, computers, and a variety of helpful, informative databases that can be accessed (using a Buena Park Library card) from our website. Librarians are on hand to help recommend material suitable for various ages and interests. The Library also offers several free programs for all ages to stimulate the joy of reading.

For more information on how you can sign up for your library card, visit the Buena Park Library at 7150 La Palma Avenue, call 714-826-4100 or see the library’s Web site. Library hours are Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
