Celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month in September, by visiting the Decatur County-Gilbert H. Gragg Library.

The Decatur County-Gilbert H. Gragg Library has something for everyone. Join the thousands of Decatur County residents who already have a library card by visiting the Decatur County-Gilbert H. Gragg Library and signing up for your very own free library card. Signing up for a library card is easy; simply bring proof of your Georgia residency to receive a library card good at more than 269 PINES libraries throughout the state of Georgia.

Library Card Sign-Up Month is a time when the American Library Association and libraries throughout the country remind us that the smartest card in a person’s wallet is their library card. Studies show that children learn best when they have the opportunity to pursue their own interests.

That’s why a library card is the most important school supply of all. Libraries provide students with access to innovative programs, classes and educational resources to support their curiosity. Best of all, it won’t cost you a thing; it’s all free with a library card.

The Decatur County-Gilbert H. Gragg Library provides many exciting resources and services for all ages, including books, DVDs, downloadable audiobooks and eBooks, books on CD, computer access, programs and classes, and much more! Please visit the Decatur County-Gilbert H. Gragg Library Monday through Saturday to see all that your library has to offer.

Library Card Sign-Up Month is held annually during the month of September. For more information on the national celebration, please visit www.atyourlibrary.org.
