Hi Margaret, We don't do that but we do put the ID number in the patron's record and that of their children.  Thanks, Jaema

Subject: [Michlib-l] Library Cards

We are looking at new circulation systems and are considering reissuing 
library cards to all patrons.  Does anyone use driver's license/state ID 
numbers or the actual driver's license/state ID in place of an actual 
library card?  Any potential problems going this direction?  We realize 
some accommodation will need to be made for children or anyone without a 
state issued ID.  If there is interest, I'm willing to post results to 
the list.
