Along with its resources, the Algonquin Area Public Library District has made your library card even more valuable.  Algonquin cardholders can show their library card at select Algonquin Commons stores through the month of September to receive discounts. 

The Library also invites you to join them on September 15th from 1-5 pm at the Algonquin Commons for their Library Card Sign Up Month event.   There will be on-sight library card sign up, a craft for kids, a special presentation of Super Couponing 2 by Jill Cataldo, and raffles for gift baskets.  This event is a shared collaboration with the Fox River Valley Public Library District and the Huntley Public Library District.

Come use the Algonquin Area Public Library for all of its resources, and celebrate September by signing up family and encouraging friends to get a library card!
