Images of the new library cards
Among the motifs featured on the new cards are a child reading and dreaming while sitting on a stack of books (2nd grade and under winner), shelves of books with a playful penguin (3rd – 5th grade winner), a host of colorful butterflies swarming a book (middle school winner), a rainbow emanating from a book (high school winner), and a lazy fox writing beneath a tree (adult winner). For the first time ever, in addition to four children’s designs, San Francisco Public Library also has a design created by an adult artist. The Library also continues to offer a “classic” or standard card. Show your library card love by snapping a photograph holding your new library card and posting it on Instagram and Twitter @sfpubliclibrary #lovemylibrary.
