VNB Community Counts: Library Card Sign-up Month

August 19, 2011

Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature Library Card Sign-up Month.

John Halliday, from the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about Library Card Sign-up Month, which is September.

Observed since 1987, this is a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Library cards are FREE and bring you a world of opportunity, no matter what your age.

- Access online databases that the library subscribes to

- Use the internet in all branches of the library system
