September: Library Card Sign-up Month

Want to travel the world? Learn how to use a computer? Or maybe you just want to download a new e-book to your tablet. Well you can do all that and more for free with a library card!  It’s what makes a library card the most valuable card in your wallet.

If you don't have a library card, come and get one!  It's free.  You'll need a picture I.D. and proof that you live in Comanche County.

If you already have a library card, stop by and let us know what you like most about using your library card.  Drop you answer in the suggestion box near the Children's area.

Thanks Lawton!

We at the Lawton Public Library appreciate the voters of Lawton. Thank you for passing the sales tax by a large margin.  This means $800,000 for library improvements over the next 12 years.

We'd love to see you at the library.  You know we have books, but we also have DVDs, CDs, programs for children & teens & adults, magazines, newspapers, computers with a printer, photo copiers,  a fax machine, information about almost anything, a premiere genealogy/family history collection, state and federal law books,  book clubs, downloadable audio books, e-books and e-magazines, data bases, car repair manuals,  and it all comes with free air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter.

We'll save you a place!
