Raleigh, NC. – Wake County Public Libraries join the many local agencies and organizations that accept Community Action IDs issued by El Pueblo, as part of FaithAction International House’s network of local IDs.

In this way, those who carry the Community ID will be able to get a library card to access the various services provided by the Wake public libraries in its 23 buildings.

“Wake County Public Libraries is pleased to partner with El Pueblo on the Community Action ID program,” said library director Mike Wasilick . “One of our goals is to reduce barriers and increase access to our books, libraries, programs and services. We anticipate the Community Action ID program will do just that by making it easier for people to sign up for a library card. We look forward to welcoming more community members to our libraries.”

The Community Action ID Program began in Wake County on February 23, 2022 and is currently recognized by the Wake County Sheriff’s Office and the Raleigh and Fuquay Varina Police Departments. Additionally, these IDs are accepted by the YMCA of Southeast Raleigh, NCIAP Peoples Medical Care, Alliance Medical Ministry and Urban Ministry, DHIC (Downtown Housing Improvement Corporation), Alliance of AIDS Services – Carolina, Downtown For Hispanic families, and Bushido USA Dojo, among others.

“We are very happy with this new achievement. We have no doubt that the libraries’ decision to be part of the Community Action ID will have a huge impact on hundreds of families,” said Mónica Drasal-Hinton, coordinator of the ID program for El Pueblo . “We encourage parents and students over the age of 18 to process this identification and make use of the services of public libraries.”

In addition to book lending, Wake Libraries offer computers, printing and copying, Wi-Fi access, space to work and study, and programs for children, teens, and adults.

So far, El Pueblo has issued almost 800 IDs with the support of the Centro Para Familias Hispanas, the YMCA of Southeast Raleigh and the Fuquay Varina United Methodist Church, which have hosted the issuance days.

The next ID event will be on February 24, from 1:30pm to 5:00pm at El Centro para Familias Hispanas (2013 Raleigh Blvd., Raleigh, NC 27604). To make an appointment enter here .
