Plenty of reasons to own a library card



Throughout the month of October, anyone who signs up for a new Timberland Regional Library (TRL) card at any of the 27 branches in Grays Harbor, Lewis, Mason, Pacific or Thurston counties, will be eligible to win one of five new Nook eReaders.

Library cards are free and available at any TRL library. Aspiring patrons need a photo ID and proof of current address, such as a piece of received mail. Children under age 17 must have a parent or guardian complete the card application for their kids.
