September is Library Card Sign Up Month!

“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.” —Sidney Sheldon

If you have put off getting a library card, now is the perfect time to get a membership. No matter your circumstance in life the library offers resources to help you get to where you want to go. We have resources for the youngest among us to the oldest and offer activities and resources for those looking to build skills or to just have fun.

Getting a library card is easy! You can register online: Get a Frisco Public Library Card, opens a new window. Then visit the library within 7 days providing a valid photo ID and proof of current address. A current Texas Driver’s License serves as both the photo ID and proof of address.

Just moved? If your photo ID does not have your current address, you will need to bring proof of address in addition to the photo ID. Accepted documents for proof of address include:

  • Lease agreement
  • Utility bill
  • Car Insurance
  • Property tax statement
  • Mail that has been processed and delivered to your home by the US Postal Service

Now that you’ve signed up for your new library card, check out some of my favorite resources that are only available to library card holders.
