The most valuable card in your wallet

Published 3:34 pm Monday, April 20, 2009

The most valuable card in your wallet is not your credit card.

In fact, the most valuable card in your wallet is your library card. Library cards open doors to research, recreation and relaxation.

A PINES library card provides you with the opportunity to check out all types of materials (including the latest DVD releases and new bestsellers), use a computer to search for jobs or find who sings that song you heard on the radio yesterday, and so much more.

Plus, with a PINES library card, you can check out materials here and return them to any PINES library in the state.

So what are you waiting for?

Come in today and sign up for a PINES library card.
