A local library is celebrating national library card sign-up month.
The New Bern-Craven County Public Library is once again taking part in the annual event to make sure students of all ages have a free card.
Anyone with a library card can borrow books, rent DVDs, and use other materials.
You can even use your library card online to renew books or access journal articles.
The American Library Association is hosting the national event.
"Every day we give out quite a few library cards. There's a lot of people from moving here to New Bern that get library cards. Military children, military families, they get library cards," said circulation department head Joan P. Robbins.
Robbins says the library will give free books and CDs to the winner of a guessing contest later this month.
