City Announces Residents Can Now Link NORDC Rec Center Cards With Library Cards

NEW ORLEANS – Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC) and the New Orleans Public Library announced the community now has the opportunity to use the services of both NORDC and the Library by linking their accounts and using only one card – either their Library Card or NORDC Rec Card.

         “Libraries and recreation centers continue to be one of the most accessible avenues for community engagement and personal enrichment at any age,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “We want to make it easier for our residents to take advantage of the services and programming that we provide.”

         To link Library and NORDC accounts, patrons can visit either their local Library or Rec Center. This service is optional and not required.

         Vic Richard, CEO of NORDC said, “We are proud to announce that our patrons can now use one card for twice the fun. The New Orleans Public Library has been a valuable partner to NORDC over the years, and I thank them for teaming up with us to provide this added convenience to our residents.”

         Charles Brown, Executive Director and City Librarian for the Library said, "Both the Library and NORDC provide important services to our community and by working together we are able to make an even greater impact. We look forward to an ongoing and increasing level of collaboration with NORDC in the future."

         The New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC) now requires patrons who participate in activities at a NORDC Rec Center to sign up for and use a NORDC Rec Card. The card is free and anyone age six and up can register for their card at any NORD Rec Center.

         The New Orleans Public Library requires anyone who wants to borrow materials to sign up for and use a Library card.
