We are thrilled to announce that September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! This annual initiative encourages individuals of all ages to explore the world of knowledge, imagination, and discovery by obtaining a library card from any of our three branches: Bowman Library, Handley Library, and Clarke County Library.  

A library card is more than just a piece of plastic – it's a ticket to a vast universe of resources, stories, and experiences. Throughout the entire month of September, the Handley Regional Library System is extending a warm invitation to community members to become cardholders and unlock a world of opportunities.  

"We are excited to celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month and invite everyone in our community to become part of the Handley Regional Library System," said Library Director John Huddy. "A library card is not just a key to books; it unlocks a world of learning, imagination, and discovery. We encourage residents to explore the vast resources, engage in our programs, and make the most of this invaluable community asset."
