Sign up, save: September is library card month

Lake Agassiz Regional Library (LARL) wants to help save you money. Stop into your local branch library or LINK site throughout the month of September to sign-up for a library card and start taking advantage of the great savings LARL has to offer.

You can save hundreds of dollars with your library card by borrowing not buying. Use your card often and save money on books, digital downloads, magazines, newspapers, genealogy resources, DVDs, children's books and programs, Internet access and more, simply by visiting your local LARL branch library or LINK site. A library card is the smartest card you can own. Just show it and save.

Registering for a library card is easy -- and it's free. Just provide proof of your address within the LARL region. Your library card is accepted at all LARL branch libraries, LINK sites and online at, as well as at other regional public library systems in Minnesota.

In a unique campaign to reach young library customers, LARL staff will strive to reach every first grader within the LARL region to make sure they have a library card. LARL staff will visit first grade classrooms in September to urge young students to sign-up for a free library card. Each first grader will receive a library card protector to encourage them to read and use their library throughout the year.

New and current cardholders are encouraged to sign-up for email notification and our free News & Events eNewsletter. Email notification is a convenient way for customers to be notified of requested items available for pick-up and of overdue materials. More information at
