Every once in a while The City Library creates a new library card design. For years and years we had a white card with a black logo. Then, around 10 years ago, we got a new design with green lettering and our new logo on it. When the Glendale Branch opened in 2015, we made a special library card to commemorate the occation, featuring the tile artwork that hangs on the outside of the building. We even created a special edition library card featuring an ice dragon for our huge Game of Thrones Celebration in 2017. But, as far as I know, we've never chosen a library card design voted on by the public. So, the next thing I'm going to tell you is very exciting...
We are doing a vote for our next library card design!
What makes this vote special, is that it's specifically for TEENS to choose a new library card design that they would like to see in the card collection. Later on we will create some new designs that adults and kids can vote on, but first teens get to have their say.
The window of opportunity is short, just two weeks, so if you'd like to help us decide which new design to pick, please cast your vote by clicking the button below. There are five designs to choose from.
And don't worry! If you're not a teen, you can still vote, but we will be weighing those teen votes more heavily. The selected design will be announced here on the blog later this fall, and we'll let you know when the new cards are available for you get at the library.
One more thing, don't worry if you don't have a library card. You can still vote! But seriously, you should get a library card. There are so many benefits, and it's free! You can apply for one here or stop by your local branch, and when the new design is ready, you can come trade in your card for the new design.
See you at the Library!
