The Great Library Card Adventure is a library card campaign for K-5 classrooms in Multnomah County, presented by the Multnomah County Library School Corps. We want every student, faculty and staff member in the county to have a Multnomah County Library card. A library card is the key to the fullest use of Multnomah County Library's information resources.
Dates: October 1 through December 13, 2013
To sign up: Complete this form by September 20. Your school will then receive a packet of informational materials.
Send completed library card applications to: Multnomah County Library School Corps, 205 NE Russell, Portland, OR 97212
Applications can also be labeled "School Corps" and dropped off at any Multnomah County Library location. Remember that library card applications must be signed on the back by the student and parent before they are submitted.
For students who are getting a library card for the first time:
- A free Mini Murph Pizza from Papa Murphy's
- 2 free game admissions and 60 nickels or 2 fee movie admissions and 1 small popcorn from Wunderland
- All teachers receive a $5 coupon for the Title Wave bookstore when they send in library card applications.
- The first 25 classrooms with 100% of the students signed up for library cards will receive a $10 gift certificate to Green Bean Books. These classrooms will also be entered in a drawing to win one of three collections of age-appropriate fiction and non-fiction books for their classroom.
The Great Library Card Adventure is made possible in part by The Library Foundation.
