A library card is the smartest card – September is Library Card Sign-up Month! Libraries support early literacy with story times and plenty of picture books, supplement a student’s education with databases and other research materials, and provide a source of lifelong learning and enjoyment with books, music, and movies for all ages and interests.
From home, after school, and on the weekends you and your student have access to a world of possibilities with a library card. Getting a card is simple: You must be 5 years old or older, present a photo i.d., and proof of current address. It’s that easy!
Stop by the Carnegie Public Library between now and Sept. 9 to see the newest works from Creative Court House! Photos on display at the library are the work of students that participated in a photography workshop. The classes covered camera basics, aperture/shutter speed, how to use your camera settings to maximize available light using flash and reflectors, basic composition, tips and tricks for better portraits, and more! Stop by the library or check out Court House Creative on Facebook for more information about upcoming classes.
