Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote. If you turned 18 recently, changed your name, moved, or haven’t voted in recent elections, then you need to update your voter registration.
We’re excited to be part of a national effort to strengthen our community by registering voters. On Tuesday, September 26, also known as National Voter Registration Day, stop by the library during open hours (9am-8pm) to register! We’ll have paper registration forms on-hand and instructions and applications for absentee ballots. Not sure if your registration is up-to-date? We can help with that as well!
Looking for a way to transform your life? All you need is a library card! Our library offers you the tools you need to expand your knowledge and skill set with access to the world’s information both in print and digitally, plus hands-on training and innovative programming.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, so visit us today, sign up for your free library card, and check out all we have to offer!
