August 28, 2013 - Show library card at local businesses
Many local businesses are teaming-up with the Oxford Public Library to support National Library Card Sign-up Month in September.
By doing so, they have generously agreed to offer either discounts on select items or services, and/or to give away free items when you show them your library card during the month of September.
For a list of participating local businesses and what they're offering, please visit www.miopl.org.
Nearly 60 percent of Oxford's population is a card-carrying member of the Oxford Public Library.
