Time to get a library card

The foliage is changing colors, but Hailey Public Library's devotion to valley residents is evergreen. We are building up our free public programs and expanding our technological resources. What better reason to take advantage of Library Card Sign-up Month than to get the valley's smartest card—a library card—in your pocket?

Library cards benefit each member of the family. Children learn the responsibility of borrowing, caring for and returning materials to lenders. They strengthen social skills by interacting with librarians. Students are provided the resources they need to compete academically, while teens and adults acquire resources needed to compete professionally. Hailey Public Library enriches lives with story times, book clubs, guest speakers, bilingual services, computer skills courses and a hearty collection of research and informational databases. Whether enjoying Internet access, participating in our programs or checking-out books, DVDs or CDs, the library is a reliable source of free entertainment.

Since Hailey Public Library is a tax-supported institution, its services and resources are available to those individuals who live or pay taxes within the city limits of Hailey or who pay a nonresident fee for services. The "library legal service area" is that area within the corporate boundaries of the city of Hailey. The library allows browsers and students from all areas to use materials while in the library. Reference assistance is provided to browsers whether or not they are Hailey residents or purchase a nonresident card.

For more information on how to obtain a library card, please call 788-2036 or visit our website at

It's all possible with a library card.
