If you have a Rawlins Municipal Library card, it’s time to renew it.
Those who live in Pierre and Fort Pierre receive complimentary library cards.
Non-residents library cards cost $35 annually. However, during the month of September, those who live in Hughes or Stanley Counties, but outside of Pierre or Fort Pierre can receive a free card by completing a brief address form. The $35 scholarships are available through a donation made to the library last year by former Pierre resident Clark Stone.
“It take less than five minutes to get a card,” said Library Director Robin Schrupp. “The card opens up a whole lot of online and hard copy products for our patrons.”
