Special edition children’s library cards
To celebrate our favourite patchwork elephant’s birthday, during February half-term we’re launching special Elmer library cards for young people who join the Hampshire Libraries in 2019. As you can see, one card features Elmer himself and one features Elmer’s unique patchwork pattern.
Any young person living or studying in Hampshire can join our library service. You can join in any Hampshire library branch, or join online if you are aged 16 or over.
- If you’re already a member of Hampshire Libraries, you can get one of the special edition cards from your library for £1. New members will get them for free
- If your membership has expired, you don't need to apply for a new card. Just visit your library to renew your membership
- If you’ve lost your library card, visit your library to get a replacement for £1 charge
- If you have a library card but don't know your PIN, you can get a PIN reminder
