Park City Library Patrons Need to Receive New Cards
The Park City Library is asking its patrons to come in for an upgrade and receive a new library card.
Park City Librarian Adriane Juarez said the new card follows several recent improvements they’ve undertaken.
“One of the last things we needed to upgrade was our library card numbers.” Juarez said. “So for a very long time, we’ve been using a shorter- than-industry- standard library card number that starts with the letter P or the letter T. And that is no longer something that is utilized by libraries. There’s a 14-digit card number that we’re going to issue everyone. So it’s a matter of getting us up to speed with the industry standard.”
She said the new card will help them to access material in the state library system.
Juarez said all you have to do is come to the information desk with your old card, an ID, and some information on your physical address if that isn’t listed on your identification.
If you have material checked out on your old card, that will transfer to the new one.
Juarez said they’re planning some creative recycling. They will create an art wall out of the old library cards.
At Summit County, Library Director Dan Compton told KPCW they’ve been using the 14-digit cards for quite a while now. He said some patrons still use the 13-digit cards, but they can be converted without much trouble.
