Be a Card Holder to the NYPL

In Paragraph City, the populace is more than adequately literate, and so was jubulant when it learned it could have a New York Public Library card for free, simply by applying here:http://www.nypl.org/books/cards.html . Applicants do need to be over 18 and they must live or work or go to school or own property in New York State. Of course, a few good citizens asked what good an NYPL card is, since it’s more than a stroll from Paragraph City to the City That Never Sleeps. And the answer to that is this: the card’s number gives the card holder access to over 80 databases, several of which truly rock.

If one is inclined to pooh-pooh the notion of the rocking database, one might go here (http://www.nypl.org/databases/) and enter something like “poetry” or “literature” or “photography” — at least  you can do that once  you get your card with its nifty number.   Until then, you’ll just have to take my word.
