It's Never Too Early to Start Visiting the Library!

What is My First Library Card?

Our My First Library Card is an early literacy program to help your child build reading and language skills. Reading early will prepare children for kindergarten, so they enter school with a love of books and ready to learn.

Who Can Get a Card & What Privileges Does it Grant?

  • All children, birth through the age of 4, who reside in the Parkland School District are eligible. The child's parent/caregiver must also have an active, valid Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC) library card.
  • Cardholders are allowed to borrow up to 20 books from our Juvenile print collection at a time. Items are checked-out for three weeks and do not incur any overdue fees.
  • My First Library Card is only accepted at the Parkland Community Library.

How Do I Sign-Up My Child?

Stop by the library (click here to see when we're open) and bring with you your little one, your photo ID, and proof of address if your photo ID is not current.
