Smyth County Public Library in coordination with Smyth County school librarians will host this event to encourage students and their families to sign up for library cards.
Receiving a library card allows patrons to use the public library at their leisure and more than doubles the number of books available to students when compared to their school library. It also gives patrons access to ebook platforms hosted by the public library as well as additional digital offerings like Ancestry.com.
There are four locations on three days from which to choose - 4:00pm to 7:00pm:
Sugar Grove & Chilhowie Elementary on the 21st
Marion Elementary on the 22nd
Atkins Elementary on the 24th
Saltville is holding their own sign up at the public library in town with their own dates and hours.
This isn't just an opportunity for school-aged children, it's for adults as well!
See the attached flyer for more information.
