September is Library Card Sign Up Month, a time when the Cobb County Public Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that everyone has the most important tool of all – a free library card.
Everyone is encouraged to join us as we celebrate Library Card Sign Up Month and to take action. Cardholders should ensure that their library cards are valid and encourage family members, friends, and neighbors to get a card. It’s easy to get one, and of course, library cards are free for residents, business owners, and property owners.
Library cards can be used to discover so many possibilities. Think of everything a library card can help with: people can use their library cards for school, to discover exciting entertainment options, to learn a new language, to find a job, to discover their family tree, to download eBooks, to research business opportunities, to take up a new hobby… the possibilities are endless. We’ll be sharing some pictures here through the month that demonstrate some of the many things made possible with your library card. Share with us your pictures, too! Follow along in the conversation on social media:

We’re excited to share these stories with you – stay tuned!
