RARE! ONLY ONE LOT AVAILABLE. Now available in yellow and white as a mixed lot - these check out cards are made by Demco. Typically yellow was used when a blue or white card had already been entirely filled, and signified that the book was a "high traffic" book - was often checked in and out. Because this was pretty rare, there are an extremely limited number of these - so grab them while you can. THIS IS MY LAST LOT OF CARDS IN WHITE AND YELLOW.

Due to their vintage nature, these lovelies range in color from snow white to a light lemon to a deep marigold, almost pumpkin shade.

As each card is unique, the actual cards you will receive will be random, and one of a kind. Your cards may be a mixture of different subjects, authors, fiction and non-fiction, and range widely in age and usage. This is for a lot of 21.

As you have read from my shop announcement or bio, I am a librarian. Many years ago, they digitized the records, so these check out cards stopped being used, for reasons of privacy.

As we check out older books, we pull the cards from the books and to toss them (new books no longer come with these cards). As I couldn't bear to see the waste, and the history, go into the trash, I've saved what I could. I am destashing a few for others to use and enjoy creatively. Also available in blue!
