Marley Dias, author, executive producer, and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, is joining the American Library Association and libraries nationwide in promoting the power of a library card this September. As honorary chair, Dias wants to remind the public that signing up for a library card provides access to technology, multimedia content and educational programming that transforms lives and strengthens communities. “A library card provides opportunity for discovery and access to a rich and diverse world. It empowers you to make change and experience new stories," said Dias.

Don't have a library card? September is #LibraryCardSignupMonth so apply for yours today! You can sign up online or in person. It's quick and easy!

Do you have friends who don't have library cards? Invite them to sign up during September. 

A Pacific Grove Public Library card opens the door to a world of information and entertainment. In addition to borrowing materials from both Pacific Grove Public Library and Monterey Public Library, your card allows you to download digital media, use electronic databases, get access to local museums, and more. Pacific Grove Public Library Cards are always free to adults, children, and even visitors who don’t have a California ID. Residents who have a disability or long-term medical condition that prevents visiting the Library may use Outreach Services. Please call (831) 648-5760 or email referencedesk@cityofpacificgrove.org for more information. Children may receive a card of their own just as soon as they are able to write their name. Applications in English and Spanish for children and adults are available at the Helpdesk.
