If you don’t have a library card, September is the time to sign up and get a chance to win a free $25 VISA Gift Card. The North Webster Community Public Library is holding a special drawing for new card holders.
When you sign up for a North Webster Community Public Library Card during the month of September, your name gets entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $25 VISA Gift Card. Then, every time you use your new card throughout the month, you get entered again. The more times you use your card, the more chances you have to win.
The drawing is open to youth and adults alike. Children in first grade through 17 years old can qualify for a library card with a parent’s signature. Remember, a North Webster Community Public Library card is free to residents of Tippecanoe Township. The library is also a member of the statewide Evergreen Library Consortium, so your North Webster card can be used at 100 libraries across the state.
If you already own a library card, we encourage you to use it often. That’s why he NWCPL is holding a free pizza drawing for existing card holders. Every time you use your Library card during September (except to check out movies), your name gets entered for a chance to win a free pizza from Bourbon Street Pizza in North Webster. The more you use your card, the more chances to win.
This drawing is also open to adults and youth. The pizza drawing doesn’t apply to movie check outs, but we haven’t left movie lovers out. We’re holding another drawing for them.
For every five DVDs or VHS tapes you check out, you have a chance to win a free DVD player. There again, the more movies you check out, the greater your chances of winning. With over 5,000 movies to choose from, you won’t run out of new ones to watch.
The contests run Sept. 1-29 with the drawings taking place Oct. 1. You need not be present to win, and winners will be notified by phone.
Your local library couldn’t agree more with Troy Polamalu that a library card is the smartest card you can own. This is especially true for youth, because a library card provides students (and adults) access to a world of both print and electronic resources including databases, homework helps, programs, and activities that enhance the educational experience. Studies have shown that students learn most effectively when they are allowed to follow their personal interests.
The library and its staff are on the frontlines of engaging these students. That’s why a library card is an essential tool for inspiring a passion for learning. So if you don’t have a Library card, get one. If you have one, use it often. It’s a win-win proposition.
