UNDATED - September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month, and you could walk away from our local library with more than just books.

Throughout the month, current Great River Regional Library Cardholders who refer their friends will be entered to win an Apple iPad, donated locally by the organization "St. Cloud Friends of the Library."

Beyond the chance to win the iPad, the Great River Library system wants you to know that they're fully stocked - they offer over 950,000 books, magazines, CDs and DVDs. Additionally, whatever you can't find at your local library can be ordered from one of the other Great River Library locations - and even nationally for more obscure materials.

The process to get a library card is easy and free. All you need to do is visit one of the 32 Great River Regional Library locations, fill out an application and show the staff a photo ID and current proof of address.
