September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. We love Library Card Sign-Up Month! Although, we consider everyday as a good day to get a library card no matter what month it is. Since it is Library Card Sign-Up Month we thought that we’d share what is needed to receive a library card from us if you are an adult or if you are a child.

To apply for a library card for an adult is easy. You must either live or work in Haywood County. Bring with you a piece of identification with your name and current address on it. The forms of identification that we will accept are: Driver’s License, Rent Receipt, Utility Receipt, Check Stub, or a letter which has been sent to you. Once you have shown you identification, you will be given an Application Card. The Application Card asks for your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. The reverse side of the Application Card asks for the name and phone number of a Personal Reference. This is someone who knows you but does not live in your household. Once you have filled out the Application Card, the information will be put into the Library Circulation System and you will be issued a library card which you will need to sign.

To apply for a library card for a child is simple as well. The child must live in Haywood County. The child must be accompanied by their parent(s)/legal guardian. The child must be able to sign their own name. The parent(s)/legal guardian must show identification with their name and current address on it. Once the identification is shown, the child will be given an Application Card. The Application Card asks for the child’s name, address, phone number, school, grade, age, and date of birth. The reverse side of the Application Card asks for the parent(s)/legal guardians name, address, and phone number. Once you/your child has filled out the Application Card, the information will be put into the Library Circulation System and the child will be issued a library card which the child must sign.

When you receive a library card from us you are agreeing with the terms listed on the back of the card where your signature is. The Library Card states “Please present your card each time you check out items. Inform the library of any changes of address. Report loss of this card immediately. Do not lend this card. I accept responsibility for all fines incurred and for lost or damaged materials borrowed on this card.” First library cards are free. There is a $2.00 replacement fee for lost or damaged cards.

Happy Reading!

What a busy few weeks it has been. We finally have changed our internet provider here at the library. Better rates for us with faster internet connection for everyone. So far so good.

It is now the month of September. Egads, it really is. The Elma Ross Public Library will be closed on Monday, September 5, in observance of Labor Day. School has started back full swing and we want to remind everyone about some great resources that are available to you. The Tennessee Electronic Library is a fantastic site for all your school needs. From research to test prep, TEL has it all. The Regional Ebook and Audiobook Download System is also available to all patrons. If the library’s copy of the book you need is checked-out, go the READS site and see if it is available there for download. Try it.

Do you know that every child who resides here in Haywood County from birth to age five is eligible to receive a free book in the mail each month until they reach 5? Haywood County Reading Railroad’s goal is to get every eligible child signed up for this engaging program. There is no cost to sign-up. Applications are available here at the library, the Health Department, and several other offices around town. Sign-up today!

Happy Reading!
