this is your library card

Our local library has just opened after being closed for the last year or so. We went along to introduce Milo, our six-month-old, to the idea of libraries in general. And we each got new library cards. I just really like them. Not sure about the coloured balls. Maybe they are there to create a sense of fun for people who don't get excited by books. And I haven't had a library card for years, so maybe lots of them are like this, but I remember having a rubbish laminated thing when I was a kid. Whereas this one folds out. And gives you a little tear-off bookmark thingy with your library ID on it, so you can renew online without needing to have your card handy. I know it's just a library card and I probably shouldn't love it as much as this. But I can't think of many examples of your council giving you something that's both nicely designed and useful. Can you?

It is so cute that you are introducing Milo to words so early. So now, when he becomes a famous writer in his later years, he will be able to have proof that he had his first library card when he was just six months old!
