(But we would like to think that every month is Library Card Sign-Up Month here at our library!)
A wise man once said that the most valuable object someone can own does not cost a penny and can fit in your wallet: a library card! During September, libraries across the nation encourage the public to go out and visit their public libraries and either get a card, re-new their cards, or use their cards.
A library card provides free access not only to books, but also to eBooks, CDs, DVD and video games, as well as makerspaces that spur creativity and computers that contain valuable research tools such as databases and archives of magazines and newspapers. For those who do not have computer access at home, a library is essential resource.
So be sure and visit your local branch and either sign-up, renew, or use your card! You can also sign-up and check your card online on our website! Here's the link! Happy searching!
