September is library card signup month

A library card grants access to books, e-books, computers, homework help, assistance with resumés and job searches, music, movies and more. In September, Evans Public Library will be waiving all lost card replacement fees, so it is a perfect time to update library cards.
The library will also be giving out gift bags to the first 25 people who sign up for a new card.
