Berlin-Peck Memorial Library • September 2018 Newsletter
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month
If you're reading this newsletter, you already have your library card. So this September, we're asking you to celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month by spreading the word! Are you an ebook reader, an audiobook fanatic, or do you love real paper books? Have you exercised your brain with BrainHQ, learned a new language with Mango Languages, or read The New York Times online? Let your friends know how you use your library card!

During the month of September, we have a few special incentives and prizes for patrons who sign up for a new library card, renew their expired card, or get a friend to sign up.
  • Kids/Teens: Receive a goody bag. There will also be a special library-themed scavenger hunt!

  • Adults: Enter to win earn a $20 gift card to Panera, or two orchestra tickets to Starman: A Tribute to David Bowie on Friday, September 28th at the Infinity Music Hall in Hartford.
