Library Card Sign-Up Month

 


The library will be celebrating “September is Library Card Sign-up Month” starting September 1st.  Each department is having a special event all month long.

The Adult Department is having a, “Sign up and be approved for a new adult card" or a "15 and older movie consented card" and receive a $5.00 DVD certificate in the mail with your newly approved card event. Children 18 and under and those 15 to 17, (who are not filling out a movie consent form) will have a choice of a food or drink coupon.

The Young Adult Department is having a raffle for those in 6th through 12th grade. A card will be available to fill out with your favorite 10 books.  A copy of the card will be made to enter into the drawing.  The drawing for two special prizes will be just after October 1, 2014. 

In The Children’s Department all the September ceiling crafts will promote signing up for a library card.  The first craft completed by a patron will be recorded on a notepad under the patron's name.  This will earn that patron a choice of a new book.


Fall Children's Family Story Time
Sign up begins on September 30.

To sign up, go to the library calendar, go to the October calendar page and choose the day and time that works best for you.  Reciprocal patrons are asked to register at the library and pay the required fee at that time.
