No Card is More Important Than Your Library Card

Link to September 4 Great Falls (Montana) Tribune editorial, "'Smartest card' a free ticket to reading, recreation".

Excerpt: If you're like us, you've got a wallet or purse bulging with cards.

Credit cards, debit cards, insurance cards, discount cards, gift cards, coffee cards, hardware cards, grocery cards and even key cards to open doors.

But there's one card that shouldbe at the top of the stack, because it opens the door to the entire universe: a library card.

The city of Great Falls has a beautiful and well-stocked public library, and by signing up for a free library card there, you get access to it all — movies, music and, most of all, books — at no cost to you. You can't beat that deal, even at a garage sale.
