Las Vegas-Clark County Library introduces new cards designed by readers

Posted at 11:08 AM, Feb 14, 2018

The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District has announced the debut of its new library cards, which will begin circulation during National Library Lovers’ Month in February. 

Each card, launching on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, will feature one of six winning designs from the Library District’s first ever #GetCarded Library Card Design Contest.

The winners – Kenneth Lamug, Lisette Nunez, Catelyn Kaufman, Katelynn Day, Mehaliye Abate, and Robia Grasmick – will have their artwork featured on thousands of cards distributed to library customers throughout the coming months. 

Those looking to obtain their first library card can sign up online or visit their nearest library branch. Once registered, they must pick up their card at a library by presenting a photo I.D. and proof of address, such as a utility bill. 

Existing cardholders may exchange their old card for one of the new designs by bringing their old card into their library branch. Their account history will then be switched over to their new account number.

The library district received more than 700 entries for the #GetCarded contest. The general public voted for their favorite designs on Facebook.

National Library Lovers’ Month takes place in February, celebrating the role that libraries play as an invaluable resource to communities across the country and throughout the world.
