A free library card is a ticket to back-to-school savings
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Jackson-George Regional Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that students have the most import school supply of all – a free library card.
Resources at the local libraries are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement.
Students can use their library cards from home, too. JGRLS libraries offer free access to important educational resources, like e-books, World Book online, Magnolia databases, Mango languages online, and so much more from the library website - www.jgrls.org.
"Our library provides all types of students with the tools they need to succeed," says Carol Hewlett, library director. "We provide students with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that they can access from the library or from home – all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all."
Anyone will benefit having a valid library card. It will open the doors to many free library services local branch libraries give. Getting a card is easy. There is no waiting period, no minimum residency requirement. Patrons can check out two items at that time. Your child may have a library card. There is no minimum age. At age 18, your teen can get a card on their own signature. All that’s needed is a driver’s license, Social Security Card or an official photo I.D., and proof of address (such as a bill mailed to your address).
