I recently added another library ticket (shown here) to my collection
of vintage library cards. It is for the Young Men's Mercantile Library
Association of Cincinnati and it was issued to D. J. Fallis in January, 1868.
I've written a previous
post about the Cincinnati
Mercantile Library which continues to exist today. There is a very
interesting story about its facility which is provided rent free in a
multi-story building in downtown Cincinnati. Library cards were called library tickets in some early libraries.
