Library Cards for Children
One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is a library card. Children are eligible for a library card from the MidPointe Library System at birth. Call your local branch for more information.
Tours and Visits
To increase awareness of the Library's facilities, services and materials, we welcome school, scout and other groups to visit our libraries. Staff may provide a storytime, building tour, and instruction on the library catalog. Call your local branch to schedule your group's tour.
