September is Library Card Sign-up Month — so sign up!

If you don’t already have a library card from the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, why in the world not? September is Library Card month, but for crying out loud you don’t need to wait until then…and pick one up for your kid while you’re at it. Sheesh!

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month and the Library wants to make sure that your child has smartest card of all — a library card. During September, people that register for a library card will be eligible for a random drawing of a library book bag filled with library goodies.

What? You still need convincing? You got a head like a rock. But okay, here’s the list:

Here are all the wonderful things that you can do with a J-MRL library card:

  • Borrow books—find a quiet spot, curl up with a book and enjoy!
    • adult fiction (over 41,000 titles in our collection)
    • non-fiction books (over 87,000 titles on our collection)
    • young adult books (over 3,000 in our collection)
    • children’s books (over 54,000 titles in our collection)
  • Borrow audio books (over 10,000 in our collection)
  • Borrow DVDs and video tapes
  • Check out music CDs
  • Use the internet in all branches of the library system
  • Use computer word processing in all branches
  • Access online databases that the library subscribes to
  • Place books on hold
  • Request books on Interlibrary Loan
  • Suggest books for the library to add to the collection

So is that clear? I hope so, because I don’t want to see you round here again without a library card in your pocket.
