Johnson County Has New Library Cards
According to the Johnson County Library, they are changing the look of their library cards for the first time in decades.
The new cards come with a second, smaller card for a keychain. Both feature an image of the library building.
Steve Rzasa, of Technical Services and Inter-Library Loan, said in a Facebook post that the cards fit in a wallet better than the old ones and are also “… more durable than their predecessors, which had a tendency to disintegrate when accidentally put in the wash.”
Rzasa said that first time patrons and individuals who had a card years ago (and may have been purged from the library system) will get the new card free of charge. Individuals who would like to get a replacement for their existing cards will be asked to pay $1.
Rzasa emphasized that, upon getting a new card, online services you use—such as Cloud Library for ebooks, and RBdigital for e-audiobooks and electronic magazines—will require you to update your authentication information.
