Plenty of reasons to sign up for a library card

The Bermuda National Library is encouraging residents to take advantage of the facility during Library Card Sign-up Month.

Throughout this month the BNL will have a registration booth set-up just outside of the main library on Queen Street in an effort to promote its free services.

Head Librarian, Joanne Brangman said: “We are a complete, free resource centre and we want all residents to utilise our libraries.

“Resources at the Bermuda National Library are available to anyone who has a library card and we offer so many options for youth and adults through our services.”

Residents can access both the main library and youth library on Church Street for materials, programmes and services that support academic achievement.

“Members also have access to free Wifi, internet terminals, e-books, the largest collection of Bermudian history books and periodicals, a vast Bermudiana collection, audio books, local and international newspapers and magazines and outreach services for seniors and homebound residents.

“Our library provides residents of all ages with the tools they need to succeed,” Ms Brangman said.

“We provide resources that can be accessed in-house or online, all with a free library card.” says.
