What's up with all the hoopla? September is Library Card sign-up month! 

ORANGE COUNTY, NC (September 5, 2017) – The Orange County Public Library invites residents of Orange, Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Durham and Person counties to sign up for a free library card and to use its newest online resource, hoopla. In appreciation, the library will give a car magnet to new card holders.

With hoopla, library customers with cards and Internet access may borrow eBooks, audiobooks, comics, movies, music and more, 24/7, no waiting. The new service adds to the library’s digital collection which includes OverDrive and NCKids.

The car magnet is 5” in diameter and boasts the library logo.

For existing card holders, new replacement cards will be free. And, from September 15-30, the library will waive fines on items brought back past due during that period.

To get your new card, bring a picture ID and proof of residency to one of the Orange County Public Library locations in Hillsborough or Carrboro. Library cards are free to:

  • local government and UNC Health Care employees; and,
  • employees of public, private and charter schools.

To get a replacement card, bring your old card with you or a picture ID, and we will update your records and provide a new card.
