Be a Cool Cat.... ReadGive the Gift of Reading

Give a gift certificate for a limited-edition Pete the Cat collector library card to your child, grandchild or someone special in your life!* Donate $20 to the DeKalb Library Foundation at any DeKalb County Public Library branch and request a gift certificate OR donate online and your gift certificate will be mailed to you.

To redeem the gift certificate, an adult recipient or a child (who must be 4 years or older) accompanied by a parent or guardian brings the certificate to any library branch. Fill out an application and provide an adult’s photo identification and proof of a DeKalb County address.

Pete the Cat cards are also available for individuals, including nonresidents (nonresident fees apply). The card has the same circulation privileges, rules and responsibilities as a regular card. The Pete the Cat library card replaces the current card and the recipient gets a new library card number. Pete the Cat collector library cards can be renewed every two years with no new donation.

Thank you for being a COOL CAT! Your tax deductible gift encourages reading and supports Library services and materials. Also see Pete the Cat merchandise available online at Café Press. For more information, call 404.370.8450 ext. 2238, or ask at the Circulation Desk.

*Child must be four years or older and recipient must have a DeKalb County address for a gift certificate.
