Library Card Sign-Up Month

Use your Library P.A.S.S. (student number and 4 digit pin—birth month and date) to check out print books as well as digital content. The Cobb County Public Library System has abundant programming and resources available to CCSD students for FREE and even offers curbside check out of print books! See the Durham Library blog highlighting this information.

Also going strong is the Durham Library’s curbside print book check out. Place your books on hold anytime, and swing by Wednesdays to pick up your selections. Happy Reading Wildcats!
