September is Library Card Sign-Up MonthCome into the library in September and celebrate Library Card Sign-up month. Every new borrower will get a Snoopy sticker. Library cards can be applied for at any age, though we usually suggest children wait until they are old enough to write their own name in full to get a card. Zelienople cards are free to any Butler County resident who can show proof of address. Non-Butler residents may show a card from their home county in Pennsylvania and get a free Zelie registration or pay $20.00 for an annual membership if they do not have a local library card.
The library has numerous resources available to anyone who has a library card. Students and parents can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable staff. Your library card also gives you access to a number of online databases for both children and adults on such things as languages, general reference and car maintenance. You can also use your library card for downloadable ebooks, audiobooks and magazines. Click on the resources tab to see what is possible.
Basic literacy skills – the ability to read and write—are essential to well-being and to fully participating in American society. Basic literacy is one of the goals of PA Forward | Pennsylvania Libraries, an initiative of the Pennsylvania Library Association. For more information on how basic literacy and PA Forward impact Pennsylvania, visit:www.paforward.org.

For other genealogy resources please ask the staff. Many of our local genealogy collection is housed on our mezzanine level. Through your library card you also have access to resources at our county library headquarters, Butler Area Public Library.
