If you’re looking to get a Lambton County library card, now is the perfect time.

Those who sign up for one, or upgrade to the newly redesigned version before June 12, will be entered into a draw to win Tourism Sarnia-Lambton vouchers.

One extra chance to win will be provided each time a patron checks out an item from the library’s physical collection during the six-week promotion.

Library Services Manager Darlene Coke said the new cards serve the same purpose, but match their updated branding.

“The new library card is a bit more durable than the previous cards that we’ve had and we’re also transitioning into one library card for all age groups rather than separate cards for separate age groups,” said Coke. “They have a little bit less waste for us, and we’re also sourcing them locally now which is great.”

Coke said the card provides access to over 210,000 books as well as other fun materials like DVDs, video games, snow shoes, Ontario Parks passes, and digital resources.

“With this new library card promotion, we are excited to welcome everyone back into our spaces and introduce new users to our spaces and the wide variety of services we offer,” she said. “This is a great opportunity for patrons to update their contact information, see the results of renovations to Corunna, Wilkesport, Alvinston, Forest and Petrolia libraries and take advantage of the recreational and educational opportunities libraries provide.”

Lambton County library cards are free for anyone who lives, works, attends school or owns property in Lambton County or lives in a First Nations community in Ontario.

The draw for the $500 grand prize voucher, as well as the $100 prize vouchers, will take place on Monday, June 13.
