February is National Library Lovers' Month

February is National Library Lovers’ Month 
Did you know that Burlington County has 16 libraries? What better way to get a head start on Library Lovers’ month than to give them a visit!

Why love your local library? Libraries are a sanctuary away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life; they offer security and peace and quiet. They are also a place where you can focus and acquire lots of knowledge.

For anyone who loves their local library, here are a few ways to celebrate Library Lovers’ Month during February:

Stop in for a visit – When was the last time you spent time in the library? If it’s been awhile, there’s no better time to stop in than during Library Lovers’ Month. Browse the shelves, check out a book or two, sit down and read or attend an event.

Volunteer – Libraries are working with limited budgets and resources, which is why volunteers of all ages are often welcome. Volunteer opportunities may include shelving books, tutoring and helping with homework, reading to children and helping with adult programs.

Donate – Government funding often isn’t enough to allow libraries to offer the wealth of programs and services that community members are in need of. Many libraries offer memorial programs, endowments, and other ways to show your support. Additional ways to donate include donating a book (or more) or buying magazine subscriptions for the library. Check with your local library to see what’s needed! 

All Burlington County residents are eligible for library membership.
Those residing in Moorestown, Willingboro and Mount Laurel, who do not pay the dedicated county tax, are eligible for paid membership.

Eligible residents may visit any library location to register for a card or apply online. Proof of residency must be provided at the time of application. For online applicants, proof of residency must be provided within 60 days of receiving a card. Examples of proof of residency include a driver’s license, school ID (elementary, middle or high school), or utility/phone bill. Click
