Your Library is holding weekly prize drawings for people who sign up for library cards during September, because it’s Library Card Sign-up Month! If you already have a card, help spread the word and tell your friends what they’re missing out on!
Getting a library card is simple. You can sign up here, call (423) 434-4450, or stop by the Library’s Circulation Desk. The only eligibility requirements to get a card are a photo ID and proof of your current address (if it’s not on your photo ID).
Director Julia Turpin says, “A library card is your key to new ideas and opportunities in life, not to mention free entertainment 24/7. Whether you’re looking to get lost in a good story, or need help creating a resume, or want to stream your favorite TV series, a JCPL card makes all that and more possible.”
With a library card, you have around 383,000 physical and digital items at your fingertips! We also offer hoopla, a popular streaming service with over 850,000 titles.
Along with entertainment choices, a library card gives you access to a ton of digital learning materials, career prep resources, and genealogical research databases, which you can find under the E-Resources tab on our website. Online classes are also available, in everything from computer software to hobbies to starting a business.
Visit our website, call (423) 434-4450, or drop by 100 West Millard Street to learn more about what a JCPL card makes possible for you. Follow Johnson City Public Library on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to receive daily updates on Library collections, services, and programs.
