September is Library Card Signup Month

Starting tomorrow, the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library wants you to get a free library card, and you know what? You oughtta. The card—designed through last year’s Design Marathon at the Charlottesville Community Design Center—gets you much more than just books.

  • Check out music CDs
  • Use the internet in all branches of the library system
  • Use computer word processing in all branches
  • Access online databases that the library subscribes to

Plus, it’s pretty snazzy looking:

Looking even further into the future, the Library’s also got a "10 in 10" event in October—the 10th month, you’ll recall—where you’ll receive 10 percent off stuff you buy at area businesses, just for signing up for a free library card. Learn more about that here.

Don’t forget to take out lots of books.
