Except for being a Columbus Metropolitan Library production, the video has nothing to do with the library card article, but I found it very much worth sharing here nonetheless.
Columbus library to issue cards for kids that won’t rack up late fees. (Columbus Dispatch, 6/26/2013)
It's a pilot project that will take place in 2 school district at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year. The school districts have yet to be selected.
How the program works
- Available to students 17 and under.
- No parental permission
- Limit of 3 teen or juvenile books at a time
- No overdue fines
- Goal: to get a library book in every child's hand
