17 Cool Things You Didn’t Know You Can Do With A Library Card

9. Take advantage of free Wi-Fi.

That’s right, in addition to free air conditioning (especially in those long summer months) the library offers free Wi-Fi, computers (for all the browsing and research!), and some libraries even have laptops you can borrow to work on while you’re there.

10. Get free admission to local museums.

The Museum Pass gives library card holders the ability to checkout free admission passes to select museums — check with your local branch or any particular museum you are interested in for details.

11. Have books delivered to your mailbox.

Many local libraries offer Library by Mail, a program designed for bibliophiles who are home-bound due to a temporary or permanent disability that makes it difficult or impossible to visit a physical library because health, advanced age, or mobility issues.

Once a patron has registered for the program, they can select the materials they wish to check out. The items are mailed directly to the patron, with a return mailing slip included — all free of charge. Some branches even help patrons find selections based on their interests, and offer extended checkouts for up to six weeks.

12. Update your tech skills!

Wanna learn how to code? Wanna become an expert at photoshop? More than 90% of U.S. public libraries now offer either formal or informal tech classes…once again, FOR FREE.

13. Get free assistance with job searches, resume writing, and interview tips.

Librarians are not just literary fountains of information. They are also trained and happy to assist you with your job search. Many local branches even offer “one-stop career centers,” which will connect you to invaluable local resources for job listings and employment services.

14. Get help with your homework.

Ask you local librarian about homework help, tutoring, SAT/ACT prep, and even for help with college searches and financial aid information.

15. Take citizenship classes.

Many library branches around the country now offer free classes, information, and resources to patrons who are looking to become American citizens.

16. Get a family pass to the zoo

Much like the Museum Pass, you can likely get a pass for up to four people per household for your local zoo!

17. Learn a new language

Looking to learn a new language? Maybe you have an upcoming trip abroad and want to learn some key phrases to help you along the way or maybe you want to become fluent in a second language — either way language-learning software or classes can be expensive. But with your library card, you can access Mango, which offers online courses in over 70 languages! And yup, you guessed it, FOR FREE!!!!

So, what are you waiting for? Go get your library card and let the adventures BEGIN!
