Which do you prefer: zombies, beaches or lightsabers?

Garfield County Libraries

For the past few years the Garfield County Libraries have let members choose from six unique library card designs when signing up with the library. While each card entitles the carrier to the same benefits, the looks are quite different. The choices aren’t your typical library cards, and the bright colors stand out well in wallets.

And now we are taking it a step further.

In conjunction with our newly adopted new mission, vision and values we want you to Find Your Story. And we know that everyone’s story is different. Everyone enjoys different hobbies, genres and tastes. We are currently hosting a survey to help decide which new library card designs to offer that reflect those tastes. Do you like the outdoors? We’ve got an “Adventure” card just for you. Can’t get enough comic books? Check out our “Superpower” card. Did you freak out last week when the new Star Wars trailer was released? Yep, we’ve got a card for you, too.

There are 18 designs in the survey, and we can’t get them all. Help us narrow it down by picking your favorite three. The survey takes only a minute, and will help us tremendously. Go to http://www.gcpld.org where there’s a link right on the homepage. Thank you!
