In celebration of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, the Haywood County Public Library is joining with other North Carolina libraries to urge citizens to use the smartest card in your wallet.
Haywood County Public Library will be celebrating Library Card Sign-Up Month this September with the following events:
• Write a love letter to your library. Entries will be judged by librarians and prizes will be awarded to the first- and second-place winners. Entries must be submitted by Monday, Sept. 19.
• Show your library card Sept. 26 to 30 at Blue Ridge Books and News in Waynesville, and receive a 10-percent discount on any purchase (excluding newspapers).
• All first-time library card applicants will receive a canvas book bag the week of Sept. 26.
• Young adults and children are invited to enter a “Why do you love your library?” video contest. Entries must be submitted by Monday, Sept. 19. The winning video will be shown on the Haywood County Government Access Station and on the television in the lower level of the Waynesville library.
