September: Library Card Sign-up Month

Bring a friend to sign up for a new library card to be entered into a grand prize drawing.

A library card is your ticket to a world of learning and entertainment. Share that world with a friend by bringing them to sign up for a new library card and be entered into a grand prize drawing as part of National Library Card Sign-up Month at the Orange County Library System (OCLS).

From September 1–30, OCLS invites all library card holders to bring a friend in-person to sign up for a new library card at any of the 16 Orange County Library locations. Card holders and their newly library-card-holding friend will be entered to win a prize pack full of great prizes to share. They can also post a selfie showing off their new card to Instagram with the hashtag #OCLSFriends to earn an extra chance to win.

Prize pack will include:

  • Four $10 gift cards to The Glass Knife
  • Two $25 gift cards to Ross
  • Two certificates redeemable for a dozen mini cupcakes at Sweet! By Holly

National Library Card Sign-up Month is an initiative coordinated by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to promote library cards as a passport to lifelong learning and academic achievement.

The promotion is open to current and new library cardholders ages 18 and older. Both current and new cardholders must have a library card in good standing in order to be eligible to win. Odds of winning depends on number of entries received. OCLS staff and Board of Trustee members are not eligible to win. Current and new library cardholders may earn an extra entry in this contest by posting on Instagram with the hashtag #OCLSFriends. To earn the bonus entry on Instagram, your profile must be public. Prize pack will not be mailed. Online library card applications are not eligible for this promotion.
