Gift givers encouraged to ‘give library’ this holiday season

Specially packaged library cards available for Nanaimo residents

Vancouver Island Regional Library is suggesting people take part in the Give Library campaign this holiday season.

The library is offering packaged library cards for children and adults and in a press release, said they are the perfect gift for anyone who loves books, movies, music and games.

“This is the second year we’ve held this wonderful holiday campaign,” said Rosemary Bonanno, VIRL executive director, in the release. “A library card opens near infinite doors of discovery and possibility to anyone lucky enough to have one. I can’t think of a better gift to give this holiday season.”

The library cards will give users access to millions of books, e-books, audio books, movies and TV shows for streaming, free downloadable MP3s, streaming music and an international selection of magazines and newspapers.

The campaign is happening at all VIRL branches, but supplies are limited.

For more information, please call David Carson at 250-753-1154 ext. 248 or e-mail dcarson@virl.bc.ca.
