September is Library Card Sign-up Month

The value of today’s libraries goes beyond books. Librarians are leaders in their communities – helping people of any age to find what they need to help improve their quality of life. This September, Gwinnett County Public Library is joining with the American Library Association and libraries nationwide for Library Card Sign-up Month, an initiative to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a free library card.

There’s really something for everyone, and it’s all free with a library card. To sign up for a library card, visit your local branch or click here.
