PEQUOT LAKES — Pequot Lakes students can now get a library card for free from the Pequot Lakes Library.

The new policy, a joint effort between the city library and the Pequot Lakes school librarian, seeks to make books more accessible to kids.

“Originally, their parent had a card and an additional card could be issued to a child for $1,” Renee Moodie, vice chair of the Pequot Lakes library board, said. “But now the children can come in and get their own cards. They don’t have to be under their parent’s card.”

Students in elementary school and middle school will need a parent’s signature on the library card application. High school students don’t need that signature.

Megan Buffington, Echo Journal intern, may be reached at 218-855-5854 or megan.buffington@pineandlakes.com. She is a 2021 Pequot Lakes High School graduate who attends the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
