Happy Library Card Sign-up Month! A reminder that you can sign up for a library card using our online form. You can also sign up in person at the library, but you’ll need to make an appointment using our Event Calendar.
Another great way to celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month is by signing up for a Boston Public Library eCard! The Boston Public Library (BPL) eCards are available to anyone who lives, resides part-time to attend school, owns property, or works in Massachusetts. With the BPL eCard, you’ll get expanded access to eResources like Hoopla and Kanopy. Visit their website for all of the details and to sign up!
