LIBRARY CARDS MEAN BIG SAVINGS IN ESSEX COUNTY DURING SEPTEMBER

September is Library Card Signup Month at the Essex Public Library. To celebrate, the library is releasing its new library card design, featuring artwork donated by Tappahannock photographer Dawn Howeth, featuring an iconic image of the Downing Bridge at sunrise. In partnership with local businesses, the library is also launching a “Show Your Card” campaign to promote local businesses and library card signups. During the month of September, library card holders are invited to show their cards to get special deals at participating businesses. Present your library card at the time of purchase to get a ten percent discount at places like Pueblo Azteca Mexican Restaurant, Thyme in a Basket, Judith Marie Shoppe, Crying Shame Frame Shop and Gifts, Tappahannock Pharmacy, and T-Town Tack Work & Western Wear. Replacement library cards are free during the month of September. While the cost to replace a lost library card is typically $1.00, if you want a card featuring the new design, you can replace your old card for free during September.
