September is Library
Card Sign-Up Month

This September marks the 30th anniversary of Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when libraries across the U.S. highlight the value of a library card. Since 1987, Library Card Sign-Up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. We want to remind parents and youth that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

This year, crime-fighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, are teaming up with libraries to encourage everyone to sign up for a free library card. You can get a full-service Bucks County library card by visiting any of the 18 locations in our system. Download an application before you visit us.

If you prefer the convenience of online registration, you can apply for our e-Card, which gives you access to our digital services available through our e-Library.

18th Annual Village Renaissance Faire

Step back in time and enter a magical world where knights, dragons, pirates, and fairies play. Performances take place on eight stages, and include jousting knights, dangling aerialists, fire breathers, archery matches, and more. Children can enjoy free crafts, visitors can purchase wares from fine artisans, and all can feast like royalty on a variety of delicious foods. The Faire takes place on September 16 and 17 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the Middletown Grange Fairgrounds. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children under five are free!  Learn more.
