A colorful drawing of animals urging people to READ! is the design on the Naperville Public Library's first children's library card.

The new card debuts Sunday, Nov. 6, and features a design created by Olivia Carlson, a fifth-grader at Brookdale Elementary School. Olivia's design was selected from more than 250 entries received during a monthlong contest this summer.

Naperville residents of all ages who visit any Naperville Public Library branch from Nov. 6-12 can replace their old card with the new one for free. The card will be issued to children 17 and younger during the entire month of November. The card will cost $2 for adults after Nov. 12, unless it is time to renew your card. At that time, it will be free.

Olivia and the 19 other contest finalists will be honored at the official card debut at 2 p.m. Nov. 6 in the lower level of the Nichols Library, 200 W. Jefferson Ave. Mayor George Pradel will be present to recognize the design contest winner and finalists.

"We are so excited to meet Olivia and the other finalists," said Carla Nolidis, Nichols Library circulation supervisor and card contest coordinator. "Their hard work and creativity was evident in the lovely designs that were submitted, and staff can hardly wait to start issuing the cards."
