From the Fallsburg Library: September 2017

By Kelly Wells and Amanda Letohic

It’s time to say goodbye to the summer heat and welcome the crisp autumn air, which also means…it’s time for back to school!
To help prepare you and your child for “back to school,” why not stop into the Fallsburg Library to sign them and yourself up for a library card? If you live in the Fallsburg Central School District, you and your children are eligible for a free library card. All we need is your current photo ID and proof of physical address within the school district. As a way to celebrate “Library Card Sign-Up” month, you will be entered into a raffle for an AMC movie gift card if you sign up for a library card between September 1, 2017 and September 30, 2017. So what are you waiting for? Stop in and sign up for your card today.
With your new library card, you’ll have access to tens of thousands of books within the Ramapo Catskill Library System (47 member libraries), thousands of movies, and e-books. Your library card will also give you access to a variety of online databases which can aid you and your child in their various school projects. To see what databases we have to offer just go to our website, and click on the “Research” tab then click on “Databases.”
Start the school year off right by getting your library card today. In the meantime, check out these great programs we have coming up in September – and remember all of our programs are FREE and open to the public.
