Don't take our word for it..

Why should you sign up for a library card?  Here are some famous people talking about libraries:

"You dropped a hundred and fifty grand on a f****** education you coulda' got for a dollar fifty in late charges at the public library."
Will - Played by Matt Damon in the movie Good Will Hunting

"My alma mater was books, a good library ... I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity." –
Malcolm X From The Autobiography of Malcolm X

"When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully -- the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer." –
Keith Richards, Rolling Stones Guitarist

"If I was a book, I would like to be a library book, so I would be taken home by all different sorts of kids. A library book, I imagine, is a happy book."
Stop in to your local library or apply online.  If you are under 17 you will need a parental unit signature in order to get a card.
