The Brooklyn Public Library has debuted a brand new "Where the Wild Things Are" library card.

The Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) knows “where the wild things are” — on their library cards!

According to the BPL, as of Tuesday, March 28, library lovers of all ages can get their paws on the organization’s new, limited-edition library card, which features exciting artwork from Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book-turned-feature film, Where the Wild Things Are.

But, that’s not all. To commemorate the new card, the BPL’s Central Library, located at 10 Grand Army Plaza will play host on Saturday, April 1 to an all-out Where the Wild Things Are party, complete with crafts, a photobooth, a “wild rumpus dance party” and a free screening of Sendak’s animated films.

To get your hands on the card, simply stop by your local branch and ask to swap your current card for a Wild Things card, free of charge. The new card will automatically be issued to children signing up as new cardholders, and will be available upon request for adult first-timers.

Saturday’s celebration will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Central Library’s Dweck Center. In addition, this weekend, every branch that offers “Saturday Storytime” will be reading Where the Wild Things Are.
