Public library now using new library card system

New automated library card system ... The new scannable system includes a free larger card for a wallet and a smaller one for a key chain. These bar code cards will help with tracking library materials and with the efficiency of checking out those materials.

The new cards for the Haakon County Public Library and its automation system arrived last week.

These are a two-part card that includes a regular credit card size library card for patrons' wallets and a much smaller card to carry on a key chain. Both sections of the card have a bar-code on the back, which is specific to the owner of the card. The library patron will also have their signature on a designated line on back of the larger card.

The library's post office box address is on the front of the larger card.
