September is Library Card Sign-Up Month

A library card opens doors and opens minds!

Library Card

During the month of September we’d like to thank all Watsonville residents for their support of our library. Visit the Watsonville or Freedom Branch libraries anytime in the month of September to check out a book or get a library card and we’ll enter you into a raffle. Raffle prizes include, gift cards to local cafes, bookstores, and the grand prize is a Kindle Fire!

When most people think “library” they think books. These days books take different shapes, such as eBooks and eAudiobooks. More than just books, libraries are places of information, offering people free access to a wealth of information that they often can’t find elsewhere. Whether they’re looking for DVDs or the latest best-seller, health or business information found on internet databases not accessible at home, or going for story times and community programming, the library is a center of community for thousands of people.

Watsonville residents can benefit from many free library resources, including:

  • Children’s story-times, craft programs, homework help and movie nights
  • Adult poetry events and book clubs
  • Teen anime club and movie nights
  • Private study rooms
  • 100,000 books, videos, and music. All freely available for borrowing
  • Downloadable eBooks, eAudiobooks and music
  • Over 500 FREE online classes
  • Computer Labs and Internet


When you visit our Main Branch stop by our handy Calculator and calculate how much you save by using your community library.

For more information contact the Library at 768-3400.
