A new selection of library cards is available to Greenville County Library patrons. The cards, featuring several new characters and artwork, have been available since Feb. 18. They can be picked up at any Greenville County Library branch, including at the bookmobile.
The cards were designed by the library system’s graphic design staff, according to Greenville County Library System’s community engagement manager, Jimmy Wooten.
The cards feature several new choices including a unicorn in space, Caesar’s Head State Park and a “discover your library” theme that highlights the various ways that patrons can use the library. Those include, Wooten said, “listening to music and audiobooks, streaming movies and TV shows, getting assistance with homework and genealogy research or booking a librarian for one-on-one assistance to learn a variety of new skills.”
Due to its popularity, the design featuring a shark has returned.
The designs are changed about once a year to keep up with demand, Wooten explains. Besides the four highlighted cards, the library also has a few previously released designs that patrons can select.
For those who are looking to update their card’s design or have lost their card, it’s just a $1 for a new one.
“Library cardholders have enjoyed being able to choose from a selection of cards that appeal to their interests,” Wooten says. “Past designs have included local landmarks, sports, hobbies, kid themes, and trending graphics.”
“The most popular library card design featured a photograph of Table Rock (State Park).”
