September is Library Card Signup Month

Has it been a while since you have visited your library? Do you feel like the library is no longer relevant? Well, we can prove you wrong! We guarantee that we have something for YOU!

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, so it’s the perfect time to explore everything your local library and the Finger Lakes Library System can offer you! With one card, our patrons have access to the resources of 33 libraries within Cayuga, Cortland, Seneca, Tioga and Cortland counties! That’s over 1,000,000 items you can check out, including books, movies, video games and much more.

But the library isn’t just about books, movies and games. As a community center, your local library includes access to Wi-Fi, computers, programs and resources to be sure you are always in the know. Want to know what kind of events are happening at your library? We try to keep a list of posted events on our Facebook Page at

Library cardholders also have access to our whole suite of digital resources such as eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines streaming movies, comics and databases. Want to learn a new language? Try Mango! Research your family history? We have HeritageQuest. Can’t remember the title of that blue book with the red writing? NoveList is here to help. A complete list of our public resources is available at


Signing up for a library card is super easy! All you need is a current photo ID with your current address, or two forms of identification which show a photo and current address. Frequently used types of identification include: current driver’s license, automobile registration, utility or telephone bill, tax receipt, school or college identification card, or bus pass with address.

For information regarding library cards for children, temporary residents, and non-residents, visit your local library.

We look forward to working with you!
