The Victoria Public Library is partnering with area businesses that will offer discounts and giveaways to library card holders during National Library Card Sign-Up Month.

Dozens of local businesses will offer special promotions to cardholders during the month of September as part of the “Show Your Library Card!” program.

“This is a great way for us to highlight the amazing local businesses here in our community while bringing awareness to the resources offered by the Victoria Public Library,” said Victoria Public Library Programs Manager Brianna Valenzuela.

Books and a lot more

A Victoria Public Library card provides access to thousands of materials, including books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs.

Cardholders who live in Victoria County can also access online resources such as e-books, movie/TV streaming and information databases, including the new CloudLibrary digital lending service that offers more than 237,000 ebooks and audiobooks from 64 libraries.

To learn about virtual resources, visit www.victoriatx.gov/library and click on “Digital Services.”

Library cards are free to all Texas residents. Cards are also available to out-of-state applicants for a $30 annual fee.

Main St. Applicants who are at least 18 years old can also apply online by visiting www.victoriatx.gov/library and clicking “My Library Card.” Library card applications for minor children must be filled out by a parent or guardian.
