Coastal libraries celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month
September has rolled in and that means it is Library Card Sign-up Month.
The designation of this celebration began in 1987 as an opportunity for people to get involved with local libraries and to utilize all they have to offer.
The process of getting a card along the Coast is simple, just visit your local library and give them a form of ID that shows your name and proof that you live in one of the six coastal counties and that’s it.
You can even get an E-card if you are unable to visit the libraries which gives you access to online features similar to those you would get at your local library. Harrison County Library System Director Sarah Crisler-Ruskey said, “It’s really exciting especially when the kid or even an older person who’s never had a card before comes in and has that smile on their face, and we feel like it’s really important for our community, for the young people and the older people to have access to information.”
The celebration will continue throughout the entire month of September.
