Like Snoopy, reading is cool. Of course, your child has access to the media center at school, but your neighborhood library also is a great resource for the whole family. Apply for a library card online, or visit a Gwinnett County Public Library branch to get your card (and a card for your child) and check out resources for making the library a regular stop for your family. Out-of-county staff members qualify for a free card with a GCPS ID. Library patrons also can borrow a free pass to enjoy nearby arts, culture, and parks, or check out an energy-efficiency test kit.
