SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Among many other things, September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. To celebrate, WSAV NOW spoke with Interim Library Executive Director of Live Oak Public Libraries Lola Shelton-Council about the benefits of signing up to get your own library card.

Shelton-Council explained that the benefits of signing up for a library card go far beyond the expected access to print materials like books.

“You can learn a language or research your family history,” She said.

By having a library card you can not only borrow books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs, but you can also get access to an Elibrary, gardening supplies, Wi-Fi hotspots and even access to passes to state parks and museums.

“Pretty much, if you’re looking for something you can find it either here physically in the library or digitally from your home or any other location,” Shelton-Council explained.
