Do You Remember Your First Library Card?

Do you remember your first library card? My first card was printed deep blue cardboard and the librarian typed my name on a typewriter at the Lyons Township District Library in Michigan.

The Chicago Public Library invited patrons to send photographs of their first library card, starting with that super cute picture of two young patrons. Check it out:

Isabel & Jasmine got their first library cards last week! Congratulations to you both! Send us photos of your first library cards (to firstcards@chipublib.org) and we will give a shout out to your kids here!
