 Buzz on over to the library to get a library card today! It’s your ticket to fun and adventure. September is National Library Card Sign Up Month. Stop by Cresco Public Library and ask a librarian about how to sign up for your very own library card. (You must have an ID with you featuring your current address or if you have recently moved to town, your new address, such as a utility bill). Once you have your library card in hand, you may check out our collection of books, movies, audio books, public computers and take advantage of our free online research resources, including our e-Library BRIDGES. 

Children obtaining a library card must be age 6 or older and come to the library with a parent or legal guardian; both must sign the registration card. Kids will enjoy our extensive Children's Library located in the basement of Cresco Public Library. There is a Teen Room on the library's main floor for older children.

For all new library card holders, there is a 90-day probation period. During this time, you may check out three books or two DVDs at a time. After the 90 day probation period ends, you may check out up to six DVD movies per household and an unlimited number of books (for children's books, we advise you check out up to 25 books at a time or fewer).

Make sure to take advantage of our e-Library, BRIDGES. You may access the BRIDGES icon from our website homepage or via our card catalog. Download the free App and enter your library card number as your username and your phone number as your password. Once you are signed into BRIDGES, you may download e-Books or audio books, movies and magazines to your electronic device for FREE!

Another free online resource you may use with your new library card is Brainfuse. Look for the Brainfuse icon on our website homepage. Brainfuse features many online learning tools, including JobNow/VetNow, where veterans looking to re-enter civilian life may connect via online chat with other veterans  to seek career assistance. Brainfuse also features resume writing assistance, tutoring, practice tests for nursing degrees and U.S. citizenship and adult lifelong learning.
