Celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month by getting a newly designed library card for free at the Jefferson Public Library.

“Rediscover the many ways to use your card,” states Elizabeth Jones. “Use your library card and PIN to freely access eRead Kids, with audio and ebooks for children in pre-k through 4th grade. Study online math and reading skills for grade 4 through college with Learning Express. Your library card offers the fast track to getting hired! Search jobs, create a professional resume and cover letter, master interview techniques and more through Learning Express Job and Career Accelerator. Check out Mango Languages on GALILEO, which features over 72 foreign language courses, for free.”

The Jefferson Public Library’s hours continue to be Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. On Saturdays, curbside only is offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Please call ahead for curbside service Mondays through Saturdays, during business hours,” Jones said. “The library will continue to wave fines until further notice. All books are quarantined four days before check in. If you see fines on your account, don’t worry, they will be forgiven! If the fines prevent you from using Pines, give us a call to fix it. We offer printing, copying, faxing, and scanning to email for a small fee. For more information on what services we provide log on to Jefferson.prlib.org or call 706-367-8012.”
