Library Card Celebration

It’s always a good time to use your library card, but for two dozen library users, September was an especially lucky month. In celebration of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, random library users were awarded coupons from Casey’s General Store and given a chance to win gift cards from local businesses. Twenty-three Forsyth residents signed up for new library cards during the month, and 5,945 items were checked out from Forsyth Public Library in September.
