A Children's Library Card of Little Use to Parents

Whose own cards have exceeded the fines threshold.

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
