Donated Borrower's Card from Santa Monica Public Library

Our thanks to the family of Mrs. Isabell K. Leitch who donated her library card for Santa Monica Public Library from February 1940. The card is quite fragile and paper. The card indicates that the fine per day in 1940 for an over-due book was 2 cents! Two cents from 1940 would be 33 cents today.
