Whether it’s providing free access to books, programs, educational apps, homework help, digital media, or 24/7 online databases and resources, a library card is one of the most cost effective back-to-school supplies. Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.
For more information about how to sign up for a library card, please visit any of our branches in person or read this.
