Special Design Library Card Now Available

Vanity license plates, affinity credit cards, logo T-shirts and bumper stickers – there are a multitude of ways people can declare their interests and affections for everything from a brand of coffee to a preferred political candidate. Now you can show your love for the Ridgefield Library with our new special edition library card, with full-color art by local artist Jamison Odone (creator of the 2008 Summer Reading Program graphics).

The new cards are available to any Ridgefield resident who signs up for a library card, for a charge of $5.00. Our original blue and white cards are still available for free to all cardholders – just tell the staff which you want when you fill out your application.

If you already have one of the regular cards and would like to “trade up,” bring the old card in with you and we will transfer your account to a new barcode. The same $5.00 charge applies. Don’t forget to update your subscription to Library ELF with the new number, so you will continue to get advance e-mail alerts about overdues and holds.

We are delighted to offer this beautiful card and to take advantage once again of the talents of Jamison Odone. His bright colors and whimsical creatures capture the happy excitement many youngsters feel when they visit the Library, but we bet many adults will want one of the new cards as well.

Also available for sale at the Circulation Desk are copies of the 2008 Summer Reading Poster signed by artist Jamison Odone ($10.00) and insulated travel mugs with the Ridgefield Library logo ($3.00). Share the Ridgefield Library with everyone on your holiday shopping list!
