Libraries Of My Life

   April 10th, 2008

Sandusky LibraryInspired by the kid who collected 3000+ library cards, I thought I'd put up all of my library cards, too.

Unlike his collection, though, these cards were all issued to me because I either lived or worked in the towns where these libraries are located. I didn't get them to build a collection - I just always use the library where I live.

Even just with this small collection, it's interesting to see the variety in designs. This gave me the idea to create a Library Cards flickr group - how about showing off your library card?

    Didn’t we have UD library cards too or did we just use the Student ID cards?

    It was just our student ID – and since that had my picture on it, I didn’t put it up. Kent State University was the same way – my student ID (with picture) was my all-access pass.

    I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago, decided it was one of my new favorites and now I find out that you are a fellow native Ohioan who shares my graduate alma mater. Cool.

    @Laura: I actually found that no matter where I go, I meet people from Ohio – but so far, very few are KSU-SLIS’ers. And thanks for the kind words about my blog – I hope Dr. Stansbury would be proud.
