The Fort Saskatchewan Public Library is aiming to have a card in every citizen's hand with their new campaign.
 
As mayor Gale Katchur proclaimed Library Month in Fort Saskatchewan, the library revealed their newly designed free cards.
 
"Our usership right now is about 4,200 in a city of 25,000 people and growing," said library board chair Renetta Peddle. "I think we can do better with those numbers."
 
The new campaign is designed to push the free cards out and educate the public about the library.
 
"A lot of the programs we have to offer, talking to people of the community, they're surprised and they're thinking 'What? That's going on in our town?' For sure it is, we want to get more people coming in through our doors so they can see what we have to offer."
 
Three grade seven classes from Rudolph Hennig and Our Lady of Angels were in attendance to discover all the fun things the library has to offer.
 
The library has amenities beyond books, including many computers as well as a 3D printer and a makerspace for filmmakers.
