Where can you check out movies, CDs, and books at no charge?  Take computer classes at no charge or just use computers provided for you for free?  Tap into Alabama's virtual library database providing access to thousands of magazines, newspapers and journals at no charge?  

You can do all this and more at the eleven public libraries in the city and county of Montgomery. 

You can also go to the library and learn nine different languages with interactive language programs, use the video gaming centers, join a book club, or request any book title available in the entire library system be delivered to the library nearest you – all at no charge.

 It is basically the best value you can get.  Nearly 160,000 people in Montgomery have library cards – provided free.  This past year the libraries serviced more than 900,000 visits. 

Not a bad service of our government – particularly in these tough economic times. 

Not a bad resolution to make for this new year either – getting a library card for you and your family members if you don't have one  - and going more often by yourself or with your family! 

That's a resolution worth keeping!
