September is Library Card Sign-up Month

Do you have a library card? If you don't, sign-up for one today as we celebrate library card sign-up month in September. A library card is your free access to books, e-books, computers, video games, magazines, homework help, job searches, movies, music and more! What an amazing deal!

Sign up for a new library card at the first floor service desk and receive a voucher for a free, small coffee (hot or iced) from our Food for Thought Bookstore and CafĂ©! (Valid Sept. 3 –30. Applies to new patron accounts only)
