September is Library Card Sign up Month! There is nothing more empowering or exciting than getting your own library card. Like this year’s library superhero, Wonder Woman, a library card can give you superpowers! It gives residents of all ages access to technology, resources and services to pursue your passions and dreams. While this Library Card Sign up Month is a little different, the Fulton County Library System still has many ways to celebrate the library, right from the comfort of home! During these challenging times, a library card is your key to a wealth of resources to help you learn to knit, help with homework, relax with a good ebook, watch a documentary or hit the running trail with your favorite music. 
This year, the library has been hard at work providing virtual programs, curbside services and enhancing the digital library while closed due to COVID-19. We continue to look for ways to engage with residents; providing the services our library patrons expect remains our top priority. Library Card Sign Up Month is a wonderful way for us to share the amazing digital library resources available to Fulton residents, while engaging with the public online through social media, our website, newsletter and other virtual platforms. I hope everyone will take a moment and get their digital library card and see how much the library has to offer.
