September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

What's the smartest card in your wallet? That's right! Your Library Card! September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Athens Regional Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.

Today's libraries aren't only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where students can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or just relax with peers. Our libraries offer access to a variety of print and digital resources, including GALILEO, Wandoo Reader,, Learning Express Library and more that can be accessed in person or online.

Throughout September, each Athens Regional Library branch will have a weekly drawing for a "Reimagine Your Library" gift bag. Everyone who signs up for a library card during September will be entered to win. The bags will include a water bottle, pen, pencil, headphone wrap, book gift certificate and more! Tell your friends to sign up for a card if they don't already have one!
