You can get your own library card. Bring your adult* with you to the Children’s Services Department, and make sure that he or she has an ID, with proof of address. Tell the librarian that you want to get your own library card. She will give you a form to fill out (it’s OK if your adult helps you with that part) and then the librarian will give you your very own blue Minuteman library card. You will sign your name on the back with a pen!

You can use your card to check out books, CDs, DVDs, and puppets. In case you didn’t know, librarians always love to talk about books if you need some ideas for what to read or listen to. You can also use your card to borrow toys, puzzles, and games to play with while you’re at the library. Oh, and you can also use it to log onto a computer while you’re at the library. I guess what I’m getting at here is, to quote Lilian Jackson Braun, “A library card is the start of a lifelong adventure.” What are you waiting for?
