September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and we are fired up at Kendall Young Library.
Everyone who checks out at least one item this month will get a candy treat and will be entered in our drawing to win a Kindle Fire. The drawing is open to cardholders of all ages. If you don’t have a Kendall Young library card, now is the perfect time to get one. Help us reach our goal of at least 200 new library cardholders this month.
