Celebrating First Library Cards

I know a number of libraries have created small rituals around first library cards. I’m flagging this one I saw recently. Great stuff and more like this please.

“A mother shared with us that her daughter gathered up some of the confetti that we shot when her older brother got his first card. Now the little girl keeps it in her pocket because it’s special. Everyone who happens to be in the library at the time end up smiling and cheering with us for our newest patron. It’s simply joyful.”
