September is Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the Ruidoso Public Library has joined with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that our students have the most important school supply of all – a free library card. Library Card Sign-up Month emphasizes the importance and benefits of having a library card for everybody, young and old, or not-so-old, alike.

Getting a library card is as important as buying a new backpack or a box of crayons at the start of the school year because it gives students access to books, DVDs, databases, and much more that can help them with their homework.

Databases at the Ruidoso Public Library that are helpful to young students include: Mango Languages, where you can learn up to 49 languages; Kids Info Bits; New Mexico Newspapers; Grzimek's Animal Encyclopedia; Opposing Viewpoints and AR-Finder.

Your library card will also let you access our e-books, downloadable audio books, graphic novels, and more.

How can I get a Library Card?

Please bring a picture ID and a second item with proof of mailing address (wherever that is) to get a card.  
At the front desk, we will enter your information directly off these items and present your card almost immediately. Children need a parent's or guardian's card/account to be responsible for his or her card, too.
