September is Library Card
Sign-up Month so I thought I would do a post about library cards. The
Matheson Memorial Library in Elkhorn, WI collected library cards from libraries
all over Wisconsin and created a special
display for Library Card Sign-up Month. An image of the display is shown
above. More images can be found HERE.
I have a small collection of of vintage
library cards and a collection of personal library
cards. Shown below from my vintage collection of cards is a library card
dated Nov. 14, 1846 for the Pennsylvania
Hospital Library, the oldest medical library in the United States. It was
founded in 1762.
