September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Cumberland County Library joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind everyone about the valuable resources available with a library card. From borrowing books, eBooks, and audiobooks to getting homework help, learning new skills, or attending a book club or story time, a library card helps everyone do more of what they enjoy. All without stretching their budget. Interested in trying a new hobby? The library can help. Thinking about starting or growing a small business? The library can help there, too, with computer classes and resources of all types.There’s something for everyone at Cumberland County Library, and signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning for students. It’s elemental, really—everyone should have one! Cumberland County Library, along with libraries everywhere, continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community.
