    September is National Library Card Sign Up Month.  To encourage residents who do not have a library card to sign up, anyone who gets a new library card during the month of September will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.  Make sure you have the "smartest" card in your wallet! More information on getting a library card can be found here.
