Seattle Public Library Unveils New Library Cards

Michael Lieberman’s Book Patrol Blog in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that five new designs (four feature images of Seattle area landmarks) are now online. The blog post contains a look at each of the new card designs.

On a personal note, I had a wonderful time in Seattle (including several visits to the SPL) during ALA Midwinter 2013 and look forward to returning to the Emerald City and Pacific Northwest for another visit very soon.
