Virtual Student Library Card
We are pleased to announce a partnership between Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools and the Scott County Library that provides secondary students at PLSAS with a fine-free virtual library card.
All PLSAS students in grades 6-12 who did not opt out received an email from Scott County Library with instructions for how to activate and use the Virtual Student Library Card.
Students can benefit from access to the vast resources available through the public library, including online tutoring and homework help, research tools, eBooks, audiobooks, electronic magazines, language learning tools, and print books. This virtual card also allows for the checkout of two physical library items.
The partnership creates a bridge between school and community resources that may help broaden students’ understanding of the world, increase literacy, and provide additional structures of learning. The school district-provided iPads and Chromebooks allow students the ability to maximize use of the public library’s resources.
The Virtual Student Library Card can be used both online and in library buildings, and will expire on July 1, following a student’s graduation. Students are not charged late fines with this card, but are responsible for costs that occur from lost or damaged items. Students who already have library cards may use either card to checkout materials from the library. The Virtual Student Library Card provides students with the same access to the full Scott County Library collection as does a standard-issue library card.
This opportunity is voluntary. Students or families had the opportunity to opt-out of the Virtual Student Library Card Partnership between Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools and Scott County Public Library.
We are excited by all the ways this partnership will benefit our students and their learning. If you have questions, please contact the Scott County Library.
