The Lafayette Public Library is announcing two limited edition library cards for 2019 in celebration of Library Card Sign-Up Month.

The Library has paired with the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind families, students, and people of all ages that signing up for a library card "opens a world of possibilities."

Access to a library offers many things that a family may not have at home, including a quiet place to study and Wi-Fi.

The library is offering two new limited-edition cards in honor of Library Card Sign-Up Month.

Patrons can choose from a Toy Story 4 themed card as well as a card featuring "Little Red Tricycle with Fleur de Lis," a painting by celebrated artist Vergie Banks.

Vergie Banks is an artist from Lafayette who is known for her vibrantly colored, cubist-influenced paintings "that celebrate the rich heritage and culture of Acadiana."

Her "Little Red Tricycle" series is one of her better known series.

The paintings feature a little girl on her three-wheeler and evoke the excitement of adventure and the nostalgia of childhood.

Both library cards will be available to the public beginning September 1st, until supplies last.
