LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH
Yay, September! This month is a bit more exciting as far as holidays go. The first one I decided to celebrate was Library Card Sign-Up Month. Now, I already have a library card and have had one for the Farmington Community Library even before I was a resident here. This was no small feat. I had to go to great lengths to prove I worked within the city in order to get a library card. A notarized letter from my employer was involved and I even had to ‘renew’ this after a year to prove I still worked in Farmington Hills. Yeah, they don’t mess around. Now that I am officially a resident, I no longer have to live in fear of my library card being snatched away from me at any given moment. Finally, peace of mind! So, for this holiday I thought it would be fun to get Roman a library card. I inquired if there was an age requirement in order to get a card and there is not. Basically Roman’s card will just be an extension of mine. So when he gets older and doesn’t return books in time that is going to go on MY permanent record. Fabulous. Roman is no stranger to the library. We go there every few weeks and he is allowed to get three new books each time. He has a very specific routine when we go….here is a peek into a Roman trip to the library:
This holiday provokes an interesting question in my mind. How many people have active library cards? By active I mean, valid library cards that have been used within the past 6 months. I decided to do a poll to see how many blog readers have a library card. Remember, these polls are very easy. You don’t have to enter any info, you simply can choose an answer and that’s it. So, please participate because it’s FUN!
