Library Card Day on Saturday 10-2

library card day Saturday April 26 from 10 to 2

Junior League of the Flint Hills members will be giving away free books to kids ages 0-13 at the library on Saturday from 10:00-2:00. This is their annual Library Card Day event to encourage families to use the library. To get a free book, children need to show that they have their own library card.  Last year, Junior League gave out 358 books, a new record for Library Card Day, and library staff issued 94 new library cards.  Parents need to be present to open a child’s library account for the first time and should have a photo ID plus proof of their current address if it is not on their ID.  Having a library card opens amazing doors for kids, including access to thousands of books and media, computer use, and free e-books for children.

“The public library is more than a repository of books. It’s a mysterious, wondrous place with the power to change lives.” -Chicago Tribune literary editor Elizabeth Taylor
