September is Library Card Sign-up Month and the Woodbridge Town Library and public libraries nationwide are trying to make sure that everyone knows about the advantages of having their own library card.
Today’s libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where residents can collaborate, find information, attend a program, and learn something new. The Woodbridge Town library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources, including books, DVDs, BLU RAYS, audiobooks, magazines, downloadable magazines, e-books, and access to databases that can be accessed in person or online.
There is also great value at the library for children and teens. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. We provide story times, craft programs, hands-on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) programs, summer reading programs and more for children. Teens can take free practice tests for the PSAT, ACT, and SAT at the library and receive their scores with an analysis of their strengths and weaknesses.
Adults can also enjoy a variety of programs including cooking demonstrations, book discussions, lectures, workshops, and concerts. Technology classes are offered periodically on downloading e-books and our Reference staff is always ready to answer any tough questions!
The Woodbridge Town Library invites Woodbridge residents who do not have a library card yet, to stop in and register for one. You will need proof of identification and residency, so bring a photo ID and something with your name and address on it.
Children who register for a card throughout September will get a wristband, sticker and bookmark. Adults who register between September 11 and 30 will get a free tote bag and packet of information on upcoming library programs, museum passes, and more.
