The American Library Association’s 2020 Honorary Chair is Wonder Woman, who will help with promoting library card sign-ups throughout the month.
McAllen Public Library has programs and resources that go far beyond books. From virtual story times and programming for all ages, to opportunities to borrow audiobooks and stream movies, there’s something for everyone. A library card can be used to assist with at-home learning, too. MPL offers access to important educational resources, such as Tutor.com, Learning Express Library, Texshare databases, and more from the McAllen Public Library’s eBranch.
“MPL understands that parents are faced with extra challenges with the virtual start of the school year. A library card provides access to so many services and resources to assist children with their school work, including free, live online tutoring and study skills coaching through Tutor.com,” said Kate Horan, Library Director. “We invite the entire community to take advantage of all the virtual programs and services available for free at the McAllen Public Library, all by signing up for your free card today.”
This year, library cards can be created over the phone and picked up with the McAllen Public Library Curbside Drive-Thru service to better serve the community in a quick and contactless way.
