Kidsercise program hosted at Commerce library

Denise Temple from Farm Bureau visited the Kidsercise program at the Commerce Public Library.

Continuing the celebration of the annual Library Card Sign-Up Month, the Commerce Public Library is promoting free library cards with a raffle of a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. Anyone who signs up for a card during Sept. will be entered into this raffle. Library manager, Angel Abounader, reminds everyone that "as well as books and movies ready for check out, your card provides passes for free or reduced price admission to Georgia State Parks, the Chattahooche Nature Center, the Atlanta Zoo and more." She said, "don't forget that the recent addition of e-reads kids, accessible with your card, helps to promote literacy in the early school grades."

After requests from several patrons Lego Club is returning to the Commerce Library on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 1 to 2 p.m. The club is open to ages four and up with an adult and will be held regularly on the fourth Saturday of each month.
