TUCSON, Ariz. - Starting in May, readers in Cochise County can use their library cards at any public library in the county. People who live in the area are being encouraged to update their accounts by May 3 to ensure uninterrupted service.
One County, One Card is a joint project of the Cochise County Library District and the seven municipal libraries across the region.
Cooperation between facilities gives residents access to more than 200,000 books and allows them to use multiple locations. Until now, readers have been required to register for a separate library card at each location they wished to use.
The next step in the One County, One Card project is to identify users with multiple accounts and have them select a "home library” location. When duplicate accounts have been consolidated, the patron database can be set to work across all library locations.
If you have a single library card in good standing, you will not need to take any action in preparation for One County, One Card.
