SF 49ers Library Card Launch & Storytime


The 49ers call themselves "SF" and play in Santa Clara. Why don't we get an SJ Earthquakes option to showcase real football and keep reppin' the real teams of San José? C'mon Marketing people!

With all due respect Otis Sistrunk (hey, didn't you play for the Raiders?) I don't think you get it... It's a BAY AREA connection... SJPL released a San Jose Sharks card and now they've released a San Francisco 49ers card. You're just a disgruntled FORMER Raider because your FORMER team is LEAVING FOR VEGAS next season! GO NINERS! #WeOWNTheRaiders #WonLastEverBattleOfTheBay #JustMoveBaby #NinersHaveFiveLombardiTrophie #RaidersOnlyHaveThree

What am I missing I can’t see how I can get the nice new card as I’m already a member

If you are already a member you can go to any SJPL location and replace your existing card with one of these new 49ers card.

Do you have to get a new library account number?

cool great succes

Does your profile have to be Public in order to have a chance of winning ?

Yes, the person entring does need to have a public profile when the entries will be counted. Entries will be counted on Thursday, Sept. 19.
