Help us celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month! Earn an entry into our prize drawing when you register for a new library card. Existing cardholders earn an entry for every 5 books, movies, music cds, or magazines they check out - all month long! There is no limit on the number of drawing entries you can earn. Prizes include library tote bags, movie tickets, Kindle tablets, and more!
Library Card Sign-Up Month prizes are donated by the Friends of the Newton Public Library. For more information on becoming involved with the Library Friends or Foundation, please see our Support the Library web page.
Register for a Digital Library Card Online
Did you know you can now register for a digital library card online? A digital library card is a temporary account that allows local residents (Newton, Lambs Grove, and rural Jasper County) to access downloadable eBooks, eAudiobooks, and online databases.
Upgrading to a physical library card from your digital one is easy! Just visit the library with your photo ID and proof of address to pick up your physical card.
Programs for Children, Teens, & Adults - Take a painting class, listen to live music, check out an Escape Room, or sing along at storytime. The library offered nearly 400 programs and events in the last year - all free!
