Encouraging people to get a library card

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library is encouraging area residents to sign up for a library card.

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month across the country, and library cards can grant people access to numerous resources from Internet-accessible computers to free books.

At JMRL, cardholders can use the library system's 3-D printers, ebooks, storytime programs and more.

Even people who already have a library card but who may have lost it or it has become damaged can take advantage by getting a replacement card for free during the entire month.

People looking to get a library card will need to register in person with a valid photo ID that shows the current address, or a photo ID and an official document showing their current address such as a utility bill, tax assessment, lease agreement, or voter registration.
