September at SLDL

So far it feels like Fall has arrived with a vengeance. Labor Day has passed, everyone is back to school, and football is already starting.  Fall preparations have been happening at the library too.  September is Library Card Sign-Up month, and we're bringing back our partnerships with area businesses to benefit our community.

Want to see everything going on? Take a look on our website to see the full calendar of events, register for events, or print out a copy to put on your fridge.

Show Us Your Card, Spring Lake!

Library Card Sign Up month is back! Just like last September, we're partnering with local businesses to benefit our cardholders. This year, our partnerships with local businesses are bigger and better than ever.

Everything works just the same as last year. Show your Spring Lake District Library card at a participating business to take advantage of discounts.  This year, the offers range from discounts on food and drink at local restaurants, carpet cleaning, furnace installations, home inspections, computer repair and more. Have you lost your library card?  We’re waiving the $2 replacement fee during September so stop in to get a new one!

Take a look at our complete list of businesses and their offers or download a copy of our brochure today, and enjoy some extra benefits to being part of the Spring Lake District Library. 

We’re thrilled to be working with local businesses again this September and are so grateful for their support of our community.   When you patronize these businesses, please thank them for working with the library and for the community.
