San Rafael offers first ever bamboo library cards!
Starting on July 1, 2014, the San Rafael Public Library will begin offering bamboo library cards to library users.
During the entire month of July you can replace your old plastic card with a new, gorgeous bamboo library card for free! All new cards issued July 1 onward will also be bamboo instead of plastic.
We are proud to be the first library anywhere in the world (that we know of) to be offering library cards made out of renewable bamboo.
We have partnered with Grovemade, a leading designer of handcrafted wooden and leather accessories. The bamboo library cards were created to promote the City of San Rafael’s goals to create a greener environment through several initiatives, including changes in lifestyle, city operations, and construction.
Made from renewable wood, the library cards are individually hand sanded and oiled. The cards are just as durable as the plastic cards.
Join us in making our planet a better place and think of ways that you, too, can reduce plastic waste.
