Get a Library Card

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.

A library card has always been the most important school supply of all. Kids can come to the library and check out books as well as DVDs, attend programs, and use the Internet to make after school life a little more fun. There’s a lot happening at GCLS.

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 their children to the library for this reason.

For more information on how you can sign up for your library card, fill out the online pre-registration form, visit any of the GCLS branches or call [919] 693-1121.
