It’s quick, it’s free, and it gives you access to world of information! It’s a library card.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Pierre Rawlins Municipal Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every child is armed with an important learning tool – a free library card.
“Research tells us children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school,” said Library Director Robin Schrupp. “Our programming is certainly centered on reading, but our library is far more than a quiet place of study. We offer all sorts activities for kids and provide a wide array of resources for adults.”
Resources available at the library include eBooks, online databases, online professional coursework, reference resources, and of course a wide variety of reading materials that can be accessed in person or online.
These materials are available to anyone who has a library card. To get a card, you’ll need a photo ID and proof of physical mailing address. Children can register under a parent’s account.
For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Rawlins Municipal Library in person at 1000 E Church St in Pierre, phone 773-7421, or visit the library online at www.rawlinslibrary.org.
