The Power is YOURS!

By Mallory Arents, PPLC Countywide Services Coordinator

The most powerful card in your wallet is your Pinellas Public library card. What other small piece of plastic provides complimentary access to thousands of books, films, and online resources? What other card allows you to learn to paint, cook, line dance, or cold brew coffee, while strumming along in an ukulele jam all in the same week? For our youngest community members, a library card is often the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning. For our more mature community members, your library card is a lifeline to staying connected and engaged, while also learning new life skills. A library card brings stories to life, and every community member deserves that power.

Join your Pinellas Public Libraries in celebrating Library Card Sign-up Month this September, a time when libraries nationwide remind the public that signing up for a library card opens a world of possibilities, no matter your passion or interest. Head to a Pinellas Public library during September to see what's new. Do you have a friend who doesn't have a library card yet? Bring them along, we'd love to see them too!
