Welcome to Cresco Public Library!

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, and 6-year-old Jacob just received his very own library card at Cresco Public Library! To receive a library card, children must be age 6 or older, and accompanied by a parent or guardian (both must sign the bottom of the orange registration card). Those age 18 and up must bring a photo ID or proof of address (such as a utility bill). Once your library card is in hand, you may take advantage of the services Cresco Public Library has to offer, including the checkout of books, magazines, movies, and patron computers with FREE Internet access! You may also use your library card number and phone number to log in to our online card catalog and renew your own materials, and also to go to Bridges, our eLibrary.

Donate items now and in October for our Silent Auction (Oct. 3-29)

Auction 2

The Friends of the Cresco Public Library are organizing the annual Silent Auction fund raiser, and you are invited to donate items for this popular yearly event!

The silent auction takes place Saturday, Oct. 3-Oct. 29 and supports the Children's Summer Reading Program at Cresco Public Library. You may drop off your auction items throughout the month of September and into October during regular library hours.

Please include your name and address with the auction items you donate, as the Friends of the Library will send you a thank you letter following the auction.

Thank you for your continued support of Cresco Public Library!
