Recently our library changed to new library cards that are similar in shape and size to shopper rewards cards. Just like the shopper cards you receive a large card and also small card for your key ring. Since my children don’t have key rings and I didn’t want to carry theirs on my key ring, I thought of an easy way to keep them handy.
When we go skiing we attach our lift tickets to our jackets with these badge reels. Our skip pass badge reels fit perfectly to our new library cards.
And it clips to the strap of our new library bag
And it easily extends the card to check out books and then retracts all while never leaving our library bag
I am hoping you have a few extra badge reels laying around your house or they can be easily found at local sporting goods stores. Most suppliers on the Internet require multiples of 100. This makes them extremely cheap (less than a dollar each) but who needs that many. If you know of a good supplier for these ski pass badge reels, please share in the comments.
