What's New at Your Library

National Library Card Month
September is National Library Card Month! From now until September 30th, if you sign up for a Shorewood-Troy Library card, you'll be automatically entered into a drawing for a $50 AMC Movie Theater gift card. If you don't have a library card, or you have friends or family who don't, now is the time to sign up.

And we haven't forgotten about our current library card holders, either. Every time you use your card to check out an item during the month of September, you'll be automatically entered to win a $50 Chili's Restaurant gift card. You're always a winner when you use your library card, but winning a gift card would be the cherry on top!
