During the month of September, the Jackson-George Regional Library System is joining the American Library Association in celebrating Library Card Sign-up Month.
By obtaining a library card, individuals gain access to a variety of resources and programs that can help with academic achievement and lifelong learning, such as audiobooks, movies, and DIY classes.
According to library director Angela Stewart, libraries play a crucial role in education and information services for both children and adults. The libraries offer essential programs and electronic resources, along with materials for people of all ages that are available 24/7 on their website. They strive to engage more with their communities by attending local events, setting up at grocery stores, churches, and football games.
The Jackson-George libraries are continuously adapting and expanding their services to meet the changing needs of the community. If you would like to sign up for a library card or learn more, please visit www.JGRLS.org or a library near you. For additional information, you can call the main library at 228-769-3060, visit their website at www.jgrls.org, or follow them on social media at @JacksonGeorgeLibrary.
