You can join the South Georgia Regional Library (SGRL) System by applying for a Georgia PINES card. PINES cards give you access to materials beyond what is available on your local library’s shelves! With your PINES card, you can order books from over 200 libraries throughout the state of Georgia! You can enjoy the benefits of a shared collection of approximately 11 million books and materials that can be delivered to your home library at no charge to you. To browse available books, simply log on to www.gapines.org, log in to your account using your PINES library card number and your PIN (the last four digits of your phone number). Logging in also allows you to see what materials you have checked out, renew items, place holds on other library materials, and have your selection delivered to your local SGRL system library. Anyone with a PINES card can also access GALILEO databases with their PINES login.
