Can You Afford Not to Have a Library Card?


You borrow the latest best seller. You visit the Children's department for storytime. You check out a DVD for your kids. You listen to an audio book on your commute. 

Over time, the value of your library card adds up. The more you use your card—the more you save! If you don't have a card, apply for one during September and you will be entered to win a gift card to Shakou. 

Have you ever wondered how much you would save by using the Library instead of purchasing these services and resources? 

$1625* - That’s what your annual savings would be if you use your card once each month for each category.
