What is the PLAY Card?

Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System has partnered with Richmond County School System, and PINES to offer the PINES PLAY (PINES Library Access for Youth) Card – a digital library card/account especially for students in grades K-12 in Richmond County public schools. This partnership recognizes the importance of literacy to a student’s academic success and takes pride in providing free access to books and online resources to help your child succeed in school, as well as fun resources that help develop a lifelong love of reading.
