New This Summer: “MyCard”

mycard

We are excited to announce the Troy Public Library MyCard. Our new youth card improves access to library materials for children who live in the city of Troy.

The MyCard is for kids and teens ages 5-17 who live in the city of Troy. With a MyCard, kids can take up to 3 items out at once. They will be able to borrow books, audiobooks, and music CDs without any late fines. Only charges for lost or damaged items will apply.

The MyCard is only valid at Troy Public Library locations. If a child already has a card in our system they may keep it or replace it with our new MyCard.

Stop in to either location to sign up for a Troy Public Library MyCard and to join our Summer Reading Challenge. Track your reading in order to try to win weekly prizes, and sign up for summer programs.

Be sure to check our website or our Facebook page for details and updates.
