September is National Library Card Signup Month. North Lake County Public Library in Polson has some fun activities planned to commemorate the event.
Anyone who opens a new library card, renews an old one, or simply shows his or her active card to any librarian will be eligible to enter a prize drawing through the months of September and October. It is possible to enter multiple times. And since October is National Pasta Month, the prizes are all about pasta.
There is no charge to open a library card, and it is not necessary to live within the district boundaries to be eligible. Adults age 18 or older simply fill out a registration slip, which includes basic information such as name, local mailing address, phone number, reference, etc. By signing the back of a new library card, users agree to accept its guidelines and take responsibility for its use. Children are eligible to open their first library card upon entering kindergarten. A parent’s or legal guardian’s signature and place of employment are required.
Renewing an existing card simply requires updating the information on your previous registration card with a librarian.
A few simple contests are also planned to commemorate National Pasta Month in October. Patrons will have the opportunity to match pasta names with the correct shapes, answer true/false pasta questions, and guess the number of noodles in a jar. These contests will be available at the circulation desk during the first three weeks of October. Prizes will be… pasta!
North Lake County Public Library (formerly Polson City Library) is located at #2 First Ave. E. in Polson. The staff invites everyone to come down during the months of September and October and take part in the activities. For questions, call 406-883-8225.
