CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Public Library System last week celebrated National Library Week. This year’s theme was “There’s More to the Story.”

According to the Cullman County Public Library System Director Sharon Townson, public libraries are more than just lending libraries.

“More importantly, libraries bring people together. People connect through library programs inside and outside the library,” she said. “Books clubs, craft groups, programs, lectures bring people with common interests together. Libraries help advance the communities they serve by providing free internet access, printing, faxing and literacy skills.”

The Cullman County Public Library System offers free access to numerous databases:

  • ABC Mouse Early Learning Academy
  • ChiltonLibrary car repair database
  • Learning Express (Civil Service practice exams, military, law enforcement, EMS, firefighter, ACT, SAT prep, GED prep, math skills, reading skills)
  • Homework Alabama/Live one-on-one tutoring kindergarten-college
  • Hoopla (Audiobooks, e-books, music, movies)
  • Libby/Camellia Net audiobooks, e-books, music, movies)

The libraries have books, CDs, DVDs, disc golf sets and even pickleball sets to lend out. There is also free Wi-Fi at each branch 24/7, and MiFi (mobile hotspots), which are circulated.
