Topic: Hamilton City Libraries new library card designs 2013
Hamlton City Libraries kicked off 2013 with the introduction of new library cards. There are 12 designs to chose from with something for everybody.
Hamilton's past and present is reflected in a series of colourful new library cards being issued by Hamilton City Libraries.
The range of 12 new designs is the first update of the Hamilton City Libraries cards in almost a decade. The range features images of the Carnegie Library, which was sited on Victoria Street, the famous arches of the Fairfield Bridge, the Ting Pavilion in the Chinese Scholar's Garden at Hamilton Gardens, Maori designs which feature in the Garden Place Library, and Honu - the libraries' tortoise mascot.
"The new cards are funky, attractive and exciting, and several feature our well-known orange tag design, continuing our brand," Circulation Services Manager Meg Bryant says. "Many of the designs stem from ideas put forward by our staff."
Mrs Bryant says the new cards went into circulation in January 2013 and feedback has been very positive
