Show Buffalo pride with your library card

Posted at 11:20 AM, Jul 27, 2016

Now you can show your support for the City of Buffalo, its sports teams, and reading with a new library card.

Pegula Sports and Entertainment announced Wednesday that the company and the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System have created "One Buffalo Community Library Cards".  The company says the cards are a way to show that sports and literacy go hand in hand, and the initiative is an expansion of recent commitments the Bills and Sabres have made to community-wide reading programs.

"Supporting the One Buffalo Community Library Card gives the Bills and Sabres another way to connect to our passionate fans," said Brent Rossi, PSE's executive vice president of marketing and brand strategy. "PSE's goal in One Buffalo is to take a leading role in promoting community initiatives that make a positive impact on Western New York. This campaign will encourage young students to obtain library cards. It will promote educational living, and it will create another opportunity for the public to show pride in their community through the use of these cards."

The One Buffalo Community Library Card will be free and available at all of the county's 37 local libraries beginning in late September and can be used at any library branch, online, and at the new "Library on Wheels" bookmobile.
