Library Card Sign-up Month results in over 3,000 new and renewed memberships. Chinook Arch Regional Library System is excited to announce that over 3,000 memberships were created or renewed in September.


During the month of September, the region joined forces with their 33 member libraries and the American Library Association to bring the annual Library Card Sign-up Month to southwest Alberta.
The campaign encouraged patrons to sign up for a new library card or renew an expired card and those who did so were entered in a draw to win a Lego Kit (under 13) or a Samsung tablet (13+).
Chinook Arch is pleased to announce that Luca Nunweiler of Lethbridge has won the Lego Kit and Jane Vanhierden of Shaughnessy (Picture Butte Municipal Library) has won the Samsung Galaxy tablet.
“We are thrilled to have reached so many people who, as a result of Library Card Sign-up Month, have new or renewed library cards,” says Public Services Librarian, Jody Mendenhall.
“Our libraries provide their communities with a wide variety of programs, services and materials including books, magazines, digital resources, toy lending, book club kits, online courses, access to streaming movies and music and so much more. It’s exciting to have over 3,000 more members who will be able to take advantage of and enjoy all that the library has to offer.”
Chinook Arch Regional Library System assists a network of cooperating libraries in Southwest Alberta to provide cost-effective, convenient access to information and library resources.
