September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month!


September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month! Make sure everyone in your family has their own "smartest card." A library card provides access to not only books but movies, music, computers, and a variety of electronic databases.

From young to old, everyone can enjoy the resources of the public library. The library provides the best-sellers to the classics, board books to graphic novels, as well as paperbacks to eBooks. All your reading desires can be met.

You can also access the library from home by going to the library’s website:
