Morgan County residents invited to sign up for a library cardSep 14, 2023 12:16PM ● By Ethan Hoffmann
September is library card sign-up month at The Morgan County Library, and the librarians have created a theme for the glass display case that new patrons and recent residents of Morgan are sure to find helpful: what can you get with a library card? The combination of cartoon animals, flowers, old books and cloud-like thought bubbles are both pleasing to the eye and enlightening to the viewer. The display of hand-drawn art was done by none other than the Youth Services Librarian, Betty Rothschild. The instructions given explain the process simply and perfectly.
For one, a library card will allow patrons to check out books, movies and audio books which are available on the shelf in the library's collection. A card also gives access to Libby, an online resource/app for audio books, ebooks and Creativebug, a website dedicated purely to crafting tutorials.
In addition, Pickleball sets, hotspots, Wii remotes, and computers are also available for check out with a library card. Free wifi and access to the library printers are also included. Black-and-white copies are 10 cents and colored copies are 25 cents.
There are many reasons Morgan County residence should consider signing up for a library card and becoming a full time member at the Morgan County Library. The benefits are many, the creative and imaginative possibilities endless and the countless number of books that come with it will keep you turning pages late into the night when you should be sleeping. λ
