With the grand opening of the Old Town Newhall Library just weeks away, the city is excited to partner with local businesses to kick off the first-ever Sign Up and Save campaign today, which will run through Sept. 30.

The Sign Up and Save campaign offers all Santa Clarita Public Library card holders a discount or incentive at participating local businesses, and all you have to do is show your current Santa Clarita Public Library card (issued from July 2011 forward) to qualify.

A total of 61 businesses to date have teamed up with the city to support the Sign Up and Save campaign, which is an impressive response from our business community that just seems to keep growing. From small retailers to national chains, business owners and managers are excited to actively celebrate community literary and the opening of Santa Clarita’s largest public library on Sept. 29.

A complete list of businesses participating in the Sign Up and Save campaign is available online at and, both of which are regularly updated as new businesses join the campaign.

I’m happy to share that we’ve seen support for the campaign from all corners of our community, giving residents ample reasons to get out and get shopping at their favorite businesses this September. A few of the participating businesses include: SCA Club Tan at the Athletic Center, two McDonalds locations in Stevenson Ranch, El Trocadero Steakhouse, Planet Soccer, the new Luscious Soul in Old Town Newhall, R and R Awards, Celebrity Beauty Supply, Ma Maison, Barnes and Noble and Sand Canyon Paint and Hardware, just to name a few. If you forget to print the list of businesses before you head out, just keep an eye out for the white Sign Up and Save sticker in your favorite business’ window and be ready to show your Santa Clarita Public Library card to save.

Sign Up and Save isn’t just a great way to get business owners and residents excited about the Old Town Newhall Library’s opening, it also gets the community involved in national “Library Card Awareness Month,” in which communities across the country encourage residents to sign up for a local public library card.

The Sign Up and Save campaign is the first of many ways residents and business owners can get involved in the events leading up to the Old Town Newhall Library’s grand opening on Sept. 29 at 10:30 a.m. where the City Council will officially open the doors to the new, state-of-the-art, 30,000 square foot library.

In addition to Sign Up and Save, tickets are still available for the Grand Opening Gala Reception on Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. benefiting the Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library. Tickets for the event are $60 per person, which includes a selection of wine and hors d’ oeuvres from local businesses as well as a chance to be among the first to tour the city’s newest library branch. Tickets must be purchased in advance by calling 661-255-4939.

The grand opening ceremony will be complemented by a street fair with a literary emphasis taking place on and around Main Street. Residents are invited to join the festivities from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., which will include food, performances, books, crafts, kid vendors and more.

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the Old Town Newhall library opening celebration by signing up for your Santa Clarita Public Library card, visiting your favorite local businesses as part of Sign Up and Save and joining us on Sept. 29 as we open the doors to one of our community’s most celebrated accomplishments.
