September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month


If you haven’t visited the Jasper County Public Library recently, September is a great month to start.

During the month of September, all three branches of JCPL are celebrating Library Card Sign-Up Month by offering a small gift to all new JCPL library cardholders, as well as weekly drawings for current cardholders who check out items during the month.

All you have to do to participate is have a library card, check out items from any branch of JCPL, and enter your name to win!

Observed since 1987, Library Card Sign Up Month is a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. So, join us as we take this opportunity to celebrate your passport to fun and adventure; your library card!
