I’m not really sure what first turned me into a reader but it has always been a joy for me. Reading has calmed & soothed me when things around me are crazy, been a great way to spend a rainy or snowy day and eased me off to sleep nightly. Sharing conversations about a favorite book or author is something my 97 year old dad and I do to this day. Trips to the local library have always had a special place on my weekly calendar and my library card is front and center in a special slot in my wallet.
Did you know Prescott Public Library, as part of the Yavapai Library Network, gives you access to over one million printed items. You can also access many electronic books, audiobooks, movies, and informational databases from home with your library card? Why not Celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month by getting your very own library card! Throughout September Prescott Public Library is offering some extra incentives for Yavapai County residents to come in and get a library card:
- A deck of Prescott Public Library playing cards for the first 190 people who sign up for a new library card.
- Bring someone in to get a card, and you’ll get a Friends of the Library book bag.
- Surprise celebrations and a welcome bag for children who get a card.
- Have fun with our photo booth for kids and adults on the 2nd floor of the library. There’s a hole for your face in these life-sized adventurous characters!
