How do I know what my child's Student Card number is?
Parents and caregivers should have received a letter from our Library Director through the school explaining how to determine a student's virtual card number. If your student is unable to log in, please check with your school librarian to make sure your student is using the correct formatting for the card number. (Please note: You will not be able to access the resources by simply typing in a student's ID number.)

What if I no longer have the letter?
Please contact your student's school librarian. They will be able to get you a new copy or explain the correct formatting for the card number.

I'm a student. How do I know what my Student Card number is?
Please see your parent or caregiver. They will be able to give you your card number.

Do I need anything other than the Student Card number?
You may be asked for a PIN. Information on the PIN for your child's Student Card number may be found in the letter mentioned above. Some resources will also ask you to register with an email and/or username

What if I have questions about how to use a resource?
Each page has links to video Tutorials. If you need further assistance, please reach out to your local library branch.
