The Library Card by Jerry Spinelli
The Library Card is divided into four short stories. Each story is about a different kid. Each kid finds a blue library card that changes their individual lives forever. Mongoose finds a blue library card, and it opens his life to a world of knowledge. Brenda gives up watching TV and discovers the mysterious world of the library. Sonseray really needs the library card for his mere existence. Finally, the bookmobile makes major life changes for April. This book was published in 1997 which makes it a little dated and the stories are mysterious, but the cool thing was to see how library cards can make a difference in a kid's life.
