The Smartest Card is @ the North Branch Area Library

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the North Branch Area Library wants to make sure that your child is among the two-thirds of Americans that carry the smartest card of all—a library card. With the Smartest Card, you have access to a goldmine of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, VHS, computers and Internet access. Why buy when you can borrow?

Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

Of course, library cards are not just for kids. A recent study by the American Library Association also showed that families use libraries to spend time together. Forty-four percent of survey respondents report taking the children to the library for this reason.

This September in order to make sure that you and your children have the Smartest Card, Domino’s Pizza in North Branch is offering a $5.00 coupon for each person that opens up a brand new library account at the North Branch Area Library!

For more information on how you can sign up for your library card and receive a Domino’s coupon, visit the North Branch Area Library at 6355 379th Street, or call the library at 651-674-8443. The library hours are: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10 am- 6pm; Tuesday & Thursday noon-8 pm; Saturday 10 am–2 pm.
