September is Library Card Sign-up Month!
Back to school is here! Get your children one of the most useful back to school supplies – a library card. It is a great way to start the school year with books and eBooks, at their fingertips. We also offer free Wi-Fi in the library with their netbooks. Children can also use our computers for homework, with parental permission, when they are eleven (11) years old and up. Library cards are not just for kids! If you live in the Heyworth Public Library District, stop in and get your free library card today. Unlock your passion for books, audiobooks, movies, cake pans, music, and so much more. We are so much larger than our walls!
Show your library love with a Heyworth Public Library Tote. Canvas tote bags are on sale for $12.00. A great way to hold your materials or a gift to your favorite library user.
