Do You Have the Smartest Card?

A library card is the smartest card in your wallet! It gives you access to free books, movies, music, homework help, eBook and audio book downloads, and so much more. If you don't have a library card, ask a parent to bring you to the library this September so you can sign up for one. 

Wait, because it gets better! Throughout the month of September, all new or existing Comsewogue Public Library cardholders are eligible to enter a raffle drawing. Winners will receive a 4-pack of tickets to the Long Island Aquarium and Exhibition Center. 

To obtain a library card, two (2) current proofs of residency, each containing your name and street address, are required. Children must be present to get a library card.
