Pick a card, any card
September is National Library Card Sign Up Month, and the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library is celebrating by offering both new and current customers new card designs.
"If customers already have a card, this is a perfect excuse to stop in, update contact information, and replace a scuffed up old card with one of the new designs," said Nancy Levin, director of Heights Libraries.
For those who don't have a card, signing up is easy, and it's free to anyone who lives, works, owns property or attends school in Ohio. All that's required is a picture ID, such as a driver's license of passport. The form is simple to fill out and you can get your new card right away. Children age 18 and under need the signature of a parent or guardian before a card can be issued.
"We thought it was about time our library cards featured our logo," said Levin. "The new cards are fun, and reflect the vibrancy and energy of our community."
These cards also are emblazoned with the CLEVNET logo on the back, a reminder that Heights Libraries is part of the CLEVNET library consortium, comprising more than 40 Ohio library systems offering users access to 10 million items.
