September Is Library Card Sign-Up Month

E-mail Print

The Library has created a new display highlighting books about libraries and reading to celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month.Back to school … back to the Garden City Public Library! September is not only back-to-school month, it is also "Library Card Sign-Up Month." A library card is the most important school supply of all for both students and their parents. This September be sure your library card is in your wallet. If you don't have one, sign up for a new one for you and for your children.

The Garden City Public Library offers free programs for adults and for children of all ages. In addition, the Library provides access to an extensive collection of books, periodicals, music CDs, audiobooks, and DVDs. The Library also provides online access through its website to authoritative electronic databases as well as to downloadable eBooks, audiobooks, and music. With a valid Library card, you can register for programs, borrow materials and museum passes, and access electronic resources.

This fall, stop by the Reference Desk to ask for a recommendation for your next read or pick up instructions on how to download eBooks. Students can register for one of the college-bound programs being offered by the Young Adult Department and learn about accessing the Library’s online homework-help and test-preparation services. Visit the Children’s Room to find out about book clubs, storytimes, and other programs for children and families. The Library also has computers for children and adults to use too. If you are homebound, you can use your Library card to sign-up for the Library’s homebound service.

This September, open the door to a world of possibilities by using your Library card. The Garden City Public Library has something to offer for every age and interest. Visit the Library for more information about all of the resources available with a Library card.
