Library Card Sign-Up Month 2021

It's Library Card Sign-Up Month! Since 1987, Library Card Sign-Up Month has been held each September. 

If you or someone you know doesn’t have a library card, now’s a great time to do it.  Stop in – only takes a few minutes – or visit our website to sign up online.  Sign up this month to get some cool library swag!

The fee for replacement cards will also be waived this month.  If you’ve lost your card, let us know, and we’ll get you a new one!

Kids' Area is Open

The kids’ area at the library is open!  We are excited for you to come in and view the renovated space. Please know that although the space is open, work is still being done in the area and not everything will be the same as what you may be used to.  Resources are available, but you may find things in different locations.  The majority of the collection is available, and computers have been set up with social distancing guidelines.  Our team is happy to help you locate the resources your children need, but no toys or games are available at this time.

Blueair donates products to Pulaski County Public Library

Pulaski County Public Library recently received a donation of two air purifiers from Blueair, a global leader in indoor air purifying solutions. Utilizing Blueair’s HEPASilent technology, the Classic 605 air purifiers can track and display current air quality, while filtering air in an up to 775 ft2 room at the industry-recommended rate of 5x an hour (or about every 12 minutes) to effectively lower particle levels and maintain a clean and comfortable environment.

Progress at the Library

Work is continuing at the library!  We’ve made a lot of progress, but there’s also more that still needs to be done.  Library staff is constantly working to provide the library services you’ve always enjoyed while also doing whatever needs done to reopen areas as quickly as possible.
