What’s cooler than Joe Cool®? Having a Villa Park Public Library card!
September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when we join the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to encourage our residents to apply for a library card. You can use your library card to access to library materials, eBooks, eMusic, streaming content, online databases and much more!
Throughout the month of September, anyone who applies for and receives a new library card will have an opportunity to spin the prize wheel for a chance to win a small prize. Call the library or visit our website at www.vppl.info for more details.
