The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe St. in Bristol, invites the public to sign up for a library card during the month of September.
Those interested can apply in-person at the library via curbside Monday-Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; inside at the service desk on Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; or begin the process via an online application.
Individuals 16 years of age and older who apply for a Grundy Library card in September and pick it up by Friday, Oct. 7 are automatically entered into a drawing for one of four $25 gift card prizes. The drawing is scheduled for Monday, Oct 10, and winners will be contacted via phone or email. Individuals need not be present to win a prize.
For 2022, the American Library Association has chosen Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, as honorary chairs. They are co-authors of the new children’s picture book Loud Mouse, available in late September. As honorary chairs, the sisters remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. During Library Card Sign-Up Month, they encourage card holders to explore all the library has to offer, like new children’s books, access to technology and educational programming.
