September is library card sign-up month

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month at Clinton Public Library.

Don’t have a library card yet? Stop by the Clinton Public Library with a current driver’s license and proof of address to sign up for your library card. Your library card gives you access to the library’s collection of books, audiobooks, magazines, DVDs, and more.

Also, you can utilize TN READs through the Overdrive and Libby apps to access numerous ebooks and audiobooks.

Visit the library and see what it has to offer and help us celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month.

StoryMaking will return from 4 - 5 p.m. Sept. 7.

Join author Michelle Compton for an afternoon of playing and making stories using inspiring materials that will unlock the imagination of your child.

She will guide your child in imagining and creating a story. Children preK-fifth grade are welcome with an accompanying adult.

The library’s program, Fandom Friday, will return for its second month from 5 - 6:30 p.m. Sept. 28. This month the fandom is “Percy Jackson and the Olympians.”

The library will have games, themed food, and everyone is encouraged to come dressed as a character from this popular series.

Fandom Friday will be every fourth Friday. Fandom Friday will be Harry Potter themed in October.

Continue to keep an eye on the library’s website and social media for upcoming details.

Also in September, the library will have patron surveys available at the library and on our website. Let the library know what it is doing well, what it needs to work on, and any changes you would like to see.

Please take the time to fill one out at your convenience. The surveys will help them improve the library and its services.

The library is going mobile with text messaging. This will consist of reminders for upcoming programs, special programs, closures, and immediate updates.

The text messaging will be divided out by adult’s, teen’s, children’s programs and general library news, so patrons will be able to pinpoint their interests and receive reminders about what matters to them. To find out more information or sign up, stop by the front desk, visit the library website, or check out its social media pages.

There will be a change to the Wi-Fi Hotspot fines effective Sept. 1.

This change is due to policy abuse. The overdue fine will be increased to $2 per day.
