Take Your Child to the Library Day was developed to spotlight libraries as vital community resources that enrich, enlighten and entertain – and to encourage adults and families to introduce children of all ages to their warm and friendly local public libraries, where everyone is always welcome to discover, learn and grow.  Take Your Child to the Library Day is also a good day to get youngsters (and others) free library cards. Parent/guardian proof of Erie County residency is required.     

The Buffalo & Erie County Public Library System has more than 3 million materials available for borrowing including books, eBooks, DVDs, music and more. Free library card applications can be downloaded and taken to any of the 38 - local public libraries for processing.  A valid form of identification and proof of address is necessary.  For more information call 716-858-8900 or visit www.BuffaloLib.org.
