Library Cards Featuring Mountain Lion P-22 Are Proving Popular.

He Got Carded

Starting Feb. 23, the Los Angeles Public Library began offering a limited-edition library card to honor P-22 and feature the importance of natural spaces and biodiversity of wildlife in our shared habitat. The image on the card, courtesy of Steve Winter and National Geographic, pays tribute to P-22, the celebrity mountain lion that captured the hearts and attention of Los Angeles and the world for many years. P-22 was euthanized late last year due to vehicular injury and illness.

The special-edition card is available at all Los Angeles Public Library locations while supplies last.

As of Alive! press time in late March, the Library was reporting that some branches had run out of the special edition library card, while some branches still had some to offer. Check with your local branch.
