Aug 22, 2023 The Library Is All That and a Bag of Chips
September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. From September 1 – 30, get in on all that! Drop by a Circulation Desk to sign up for a new Library Card or renew your current one and get all the Library has to offer and a bag of chips, clip included.*
Where else can you go to learn how to sew an apron, design a 3D keychain, print and make color copies, reserve a quiet study room, check out a BingeBox of movies all while your kids crack the code on another break-in box or help Mr. Mike redesign the model train, and then listen to an audiobook on your way home? Only the Library, of course! That’s what makes us all that and a bag of chips.
In addition, new or renewing cardholders can choose one of our exclusive HMMPL Library Cards. Several were designed by Library staff, and two new designs were created by Youth Art Month participants, including Rebecca Ottinger’s 2022 Reflection and Hannah Patel’s 2023 One with the Forest.

HOW IT WORKS
To sign up for or renew your Library Card and choose one of our custom designs, select one of the following options:
- Sign up for a new card at home using our Get a Card form online, then stop by the 1st floor Circulation Desk inside the Library.
- Sign up for a new card by stopping at one of our Circulation Desks inside the Library.
- Renew your current card by stopping at one of our Circulation Desks inside the Library.
When you stop by the Circulation Desk, be sure to bring a photo ID with your current street address. Minors need a parent or legal guardian present. Don’t forget your bag of chips and chip clip!
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Everyone in the household can receive a card, no age limits. Check out our Library Card Guide to see a list of all the various kinds of Library cards available to our patrons, along with more specific eligibility guidelines. Good news for Perry Township residents: You can also receive one Library card per household, at no cost to you!
Even if you already have a Library card at HMMPL, you’re still eligible to receive a new custom Library card by exchanging your current card for a new one. (NOTE: This will change the barcode number on your account.) You’ll also receive a bag of chips and a chip clip* when you get a new card or renew your existing one!
Special thanks to the Friends of the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library for their generous funding for this program.
