Art In Your Wallet: Library Cards and You (And Your Neighbours)

This book is about libraries in Ontario celebrating our value to our communities. These festivities are always wonderful but this year we start our 151st year of being a province and a country so we put together a book that celebrates library cards that are the Art in Your Wallet. Public libraries use wonderful images on Library cards to share library ideas, stories, histories, value, and more.

If your library wasn’t able to get the card art to us in 2018, we do expect to create a second edition. Ask us how (helen@fopl.ca).

UPDATE:

LSC has added this title to their database and will be including it as a featured title next week.

Libraries can order the title through LSC using their regular invoice payment system rather than needing to use a credit card through Amazon.

And of course LSC can catalogue and process it.

Thank you!
