Just In Time For Back To School, The Berkshire Athenaeum Has Some New Promotions
All I can say is, thank goodness for the Berkshire Athenaeum! Ever since my family moved to the beautiful Berkshires in 1982, the Athenaeum has had me covered when I wanted and/or needed to get my reading on!
It's almost time for back to school and the month of September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month! What better reasons do you need to get reacquainted with the Athenaeum? Or, if you've never been, trust me, now is the time to get yourself a library card!
The Berkshire Athenaeum, in honor of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, is offering up some awesome promotions. Check this out: Book lovers who sign up for or renew a library card in September can enter a raffle to win a $150 Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. gift card and two family memberships to the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum. Now, how cool is that?
Entries are accepted at the library’s Circulation Desk and Children’s Desk. But wait, that's not all. Once you have your library card, you can enjoy benefits and discounts at numerous participating locations. You can find information outlining all those special offers at any of the service desks at the Athenaeum.
Tony Award-winning performer Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author, and educator Cara Mentzel, are the honorary chairs of the 2022 National Library Card Sign-up Month. According to a media statement from the Athenaeum:
The sisters encourage exploring all that libraries have to offer, including new children’s books, access to technology, and educational programming.
All the goodies that come with National Library Card Sign-Up Month are courtesy of the Berkshire Athenaeum in partnership with the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, Downtown Pittsfield, Inc., and several Pittsfield businesses and organizations.
So what are you waiting for, Berkshire County? Get to the Berkshire Athenaeum and reacquaint yourself with the many pleasures derived from reading a good book!
