The Downtown Library turns 40 this month and we’re celebrating with a new cardholder drive! From now until November 30, everyone who gets a new library card (or brings in a friend to sign up for a new card) will be entered into a drawing for a brand new eReader! Your library card is free if you live inside the Amarillo City Limits and all you need to get one is a photo ID and proof of residency (e.g. utility bill or lease agreement). If you live outside the city limits, your library card is just $18 per year for an individual, or $33 per year for a family. Besides giving you access to the million+ items in our collection, an Amarillo Public Library card allows you to take advantage of fantastic online resources including downloadable ebooks and audiobooks, language learning software, online comics, and more!
We’ll hold the drawing at our 40 Year Celebration on November 30.
