September is Library Card Sign-up Month and the staff at the Greenfield Library would like to remind parents that your children need to have the smartest card in their wallets – a library card. Please bring your kindergarten-age or older children to the front desk and sign them up for a card if they don’t already have one. The only requirement is that their parent must have a library card in good standing within the Highland County system.
If a parent needs a card, we will be happy to oblige. Bring in a picture ID and one other piece of identification showing your current address. That’s all it takes. To encourage our young patrons to have and use their library cards, children who sign up for a new card during the month of September will get a grab bag of goodies. We will also have an “Incredible” contest for all patrons who use their library card during the month of September. So come in and help us celebrate Library Card Month from Sept. 4-29.
The Highland County libraries will be closed Monday, Sept. 3 in observance of the Labor Day holiday. Please feel free to use our outside book drop to return items.
We will be having a book sale in our community room starting Tuesday, Sept. 4 through Monday, Sept. 10. Come in and browse the great book bargains.
Our senior exercise classes facilitated by Edgewood Manor continue on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. Join in on the fun and help your heart.
Our storytimes resume on Wednesday, Sept. 12 and continue every Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. All preschool age children and their parents are invited to join us for a time of songs, rhymes, stories and crafts. Stop by our front desk to pick up a booklet that includes this year’s dates, themes and more information.
