Stay Connected @ Your Library

Posted on Friday, August 19, 2016 by Brandy

With the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year, I wanted to share all the ways the library helps you stay connected to the books and services you love most. All you need is an internet connection, an email address and a library card. Don’t forget to also sign up for our monthly email newsletter to get library program reminders, contest announcements, as well as book reviews and recommendations delivered directly to your inbox.
