A Library Card is your child’s ticket to academic achievement.
By LUCY GLENN
Library Public Services Coordinator
Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can ensure your child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the public library.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when Pulaski County Public Library and Charles and Ona B. Free Memorial Library join with American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure every student has the most important school supply of all — a free library card.
Resources at the Pulaski and Dublin library branches are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement.
Through the library website, www.pclibs.org, FindIt Virginia databases, other database services and the digitized archives of The Southwest Times newspaper are available.
Students can use their library cards from home, too. The library card offers access to important educational resources such as e-books, online homework help and online databases.
Our library provides all types of students a welcoming atmosphere where they can explore, discover and create.
Students learn in a variety of ways. Thanks to the resources available at the library, we can meet the needs of all ages and types of learners. Whether through homework help or accessing print and e-books, the library has something for everyone — all with a free library card.
Throughout September, you may register for your new library card and you will receive a coupon for $5 off a meal at Fatz Restaurant in Dublin.
For more information on how to sign up for a library card, call or visit Pulaski County Public Library (60 Third St. NW, Pulaski, 980-7770) or Charles and Ona B. Free Memorial Library (300 Giles Ave., Dublin, 674-2856).
