Library Cards for Library Card Sign-up Month


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.
