February Highlights

New library cards

New library cards available in Feb.

All Washington County Library patrons are invited to pick a card, any card from seven newly designed library card options. The recently redesigned library cards (and matching keytags) offer patrons a chance to choose a library card that matches their unique library experience. New patrons can select their card when they sign up, and existing patrons can come to any Washington County Library location to swap their plain, white library card for a colorful replacement.
