Delaware Libraries offers two new cards for Kids!
My First Card for birth to 5 years, and a Super Library Card for kids 6-12 years.
What is a My First Card?
A library card targeting babies, toddlers, and preschoolers (Birth to 5).
What is a Super Library Card?
A library card targeting school-aged children (6-12).
Who can get a card?
Any child in the target ages.
What is the expiration date?
Three years after the card is issued, the same as regular library cards. Cards can be renewed by logging into your account, calling the library, or speaking to someone at the Checkout Desk.
What can I check out?
Both cards can be used to check out only Juvenile materials (no Teen or Adult materials, including Teen games and DVDs). There will be a limit of 12 items and there will be no overdue fines. Charges for lost or damaged items will still occur.
What if my child already has a card?
You can get a My First Card or Super Library Card for free. Your old account will be closed and a new account will be set up. You will receive new library cards.
How do we use the “trackers”?
Every time your child comes to the library, their tracker card will get stamped. After 10 visits (10 stamps) they will receive a prize. For the My First Card they will receive a growth chart. For the Super Library Card they will receive a zipper pull. There are 5 designs so your child can work to collect all 5 zipper pulls!
