Sign up for library card

National Library Card Sign-up Month is September and this year's theme is "The Smartest Card. Get It. Use It. @ your library."

Washington County Free Library Director Mary Baykan and Washington County Public Schools Superintendent Betty Morgan encourage people to sign up for a library card.

Studies suggest children who are read to in the home and use library services often do better in school and are more likely to keep using libraries as a source for lifetime learning.

Books, magazines, the Internet, audiotapes, videotapes, compact discs, DVDs and more are available at public libraries to all people.

Free homework help, computer classes and more are available at your public library.
