7 Simple Ways to Give Your Student a Boost

1

Get a card ~ A public library card is one of the most important school supplies your student can have.  It’s free and it’s easy.  A parent, legal guardian, or other adult over age 18 must sign the registration card for children who are in eighth grade or younger.  Please call ahead (620-245-2570) and we can tell you the necessary information to bring with you.
