Brand new 'street art' card

Brand new 'street art' library card launched

A funky new library card has been launched for use by the county's teenagers.

The Young Person's Library Card is believed to be the first dedicated library card for teenagers in the Midlands and it was designed by local artist Louis Burrows, who comes from Evesham. Louis, aged 19, was the winner of a countywide competition that was organised by Worcestershire County Council's Libraries and Learning team to design the card. The new card features Louis' colourful 'street art' graffiti design that has already been a hit with young people since its introduction. The library card comes in two formats, one standard library card and one smaller card which can be attached to a key ring.  

Louis Burrows with the new Young Person's Library CardLouis said: "I was absolutely delighted to win the competition to design the new Young Person's Library Card and I'm now very excited to see the finished card being used by young library users, like myself, across Worcestershire. It's incredible to think how many people will be able to carry a copy of a young person's artwork around with them day to day."

Natalie McVey, Service Development Co-ordinator for young people 13-19 said: "Libraries offer so much more than books, there's a whole host of other items that can be borrowed using your library card, such as DVD's, CD's, e-Books and audio-books. We also offer free internet and Wi-Fi access and run a wide range of competitions, events and activities all-year-round that young people can get involved in.

"We're really pleased that the Young Person's Library Card has been launched as it shows our commitment to getting teenagers involved with using libraries."
