We are gearing up to host a very special event at the Athens-Clarke County Public Library later this month!

Did you know that September is Library Card Sign-up Month?

Every student at Chase Street School receives a library card at the beginning of the new school year that allows them to check out books from our school library.

Many of our students also have library cards for our public library, which is part of the Georgia PINES library system:

Our goal for library card sign-up month is for EVERY Chase Street Tree Frog to have their own PINES library card!

To help our students and families learn more about our local public library and sign up for cards, our school (along with most of the other elementary schools in CCSD) has partnered with Evan Bush, head of the ACC Library Children’s Department, for an extra special Night at the Library!

Our event will include a library tour, tons of information about what the library has to offer, and a chance to win a cool bag of free books and other reading-related goodies.

(And if you’d like to sign up for your very own library card, make sure to bring identification and proof of address.)

Why sign up for a PINES library card?

It allows you to check out books and other materials from any library in the PINES network all over the state of Georgia, giving you access to MILLIONS of great books!

Plus, did you know you can use your PINES card to check out e-books, audio books, movies, and a family pass to Zoo Atlanta? You can even check out ukuleles!

Our public library also offers all kinds of resources, programs, and events for kids and adults of all ages.

Finally, while our school is closed in the evenings, on weekends, and during the summer, you can visit the public library year-round!

We can’t wait for our Night at the Library! Tree Frogs, I’ll look forward to seeing you there!
