Do you remember your first library card? Today I saw a friend post a picture of her daughter receiving her first one. It made me think of that day and I wonder if anyone else remembers it fondly. For me, I must have been about 5 years old. I remember waiting at the desk and my mom talking to the librarian. The librarian handed me a laminated card. White with a blue outline. I was then asked to sign it. Oh my goodness I thought I was just about the most important person in the world at that moment. I got to sign it? Like my parents sign things? I took the pen and focused on writing my best signature. It was so good, that it curves down around the edge of the card. I was five. It was adorable. It may have seemed like an insignificant moment to others, or even to my parents, but I recall that moment as one of my earliest memories. I loved checking books out with that thing. I was hot stuff! Honestly, I think I thought it was a credit card. If only. Does anyone else have a library card story?
