Li­braries of­fer thanks to busi­nesses, res­i­dents

The Ambler Gazette - - OPINION -

To the Ed­i­tor:

The Up­per Dublin and Wis­sahickon Val­ley pub­lic li­braries would like to thank their lo­cal busi­nesses and li­brary card­hold­ers for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the third an­nual “Septem­ber is iibrary Card Sign Up Month” pro­mo­tion! Dur­ing the month of Septem­ber, card­hold­ers re­ceived dis­counts or free gifts at par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­cal mer­chants when they showed their li­brary cards.

With nearly 200,000 an­nual vis­its and more than 327,000 items checked out just last year at the UDPi, it’s clear that res­i­dents al­ready un­der­stand the value of a li­brary card, which is what makes this pro­mo­tion so spe­cial. Whether it’s books, movies, mu­sic, ac­cess to ebooks or even bor­row­ing lo­cal mu­seum passes, peo­ple are be­com­ing more aware that li­braries have some­thing for ev­ery­one. iibrary Card SignUp Month is a nice way to re­ward those pa­trons each year while pro­vid­ing an added in­cen­tive for some­one to get a card if they don’t have one.

A very spe­cial thanks to the fol­low­ing community busi­nesses for their gen­er­ous sup­port this year: Ambler Donuts, Ambler Flower Shop, Ambler Skateshop, Broad Axe Tav­ern, Café Maida, Cantina Feliz, Costa’s Deli, Earthly Pos­ses­sions, Fireside Bar & drille, Ha­i­ri­zon, Jack­ets-n-Things, iearn­ing Ex­press Toys of Blue Bell, The iit­tle Bak­ery, iiz-El Jewel Box, McDon­alds – Ambler, Maguire’s Mar­ket, Main Street Vin­tage, Make the drade, Maple dlen dift 6KRS, 0DVVD BY2, 0HUPDLG Art Stu­dio, ko Bare Walls, Pure Spa, Sub­way – Ambler, Sub­way – Fort Wash­ing­ton, Sweet Briar Café and Vi­sion Beauty Academy.

The Up­per Dublin Pub­lic iibrary would also like to ac­knowl­edge the gen­eros­ity of the Friends of Up­per Dublin Pub­lic iibrary, Rita’s Wa­ter Ice of Abing­ton & dlen­side and McDon­alds of Dresher for their sup­port of Sum­mer Read­ing Club 2012.
