September is “Library Card Sign-Up” month and the Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library would like to invite anyone who doesn’t have a library card to come by the library and get one. The process is very simple - just fill out a short form and a few minutes later you are ready to check out books, movies, audio books, and magazines. Any Texas resident may get a library card at no charge. Non-Texas residents may get a temporary six-month library card for a fee of $30.
