Library issues Christmas-themed library cards for holiday gifts

What could be better than a gift that educates, informs, and entertains, all for free?

Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) invites people to “Give Library” again this holiday season with beautifully-packaged library cards for kids and adults.

They’re the perfect gift for anyone who loves books, movies, music, languages, games, and so much more.

“This is the second year we’ve held this wonderful holiday campaign,” says VIRL’s Executive Director Rosemary Bonanno. “A library card opens near infinite doors of discovery and possibility to anyone lucky enough to have one. I can’t think of a better gift to give this holiday season.”

Here’s a snapshot of just some of the resources available with a library card:

Access to millions of books, ebooks, and audiobooks

Critically-acclaimed streaming movies and TV

Free downloadable mp3 and streaming music

A global selection of magazines and newspapers

Lifelong learning opportunities

The Give Library campaign is happening at all VIRL branches. Supplies are limited, so people are encouraged to visit their library early to pick up their cards before they’re gone.
