How the Partnership Works:
- Every student in Roseville Community Schools will be issued a virtual library card using the prefix “RCS” followed by the student’s Roseville school ID number as the library card number.
- Their four-digit PIN will be the last four digits of the phone number listed in their records. If there is no phone number on file, a four-digit PIN will be automatically provided. Students or parents/guardians may contact the Roseville Public Library to change or obtain the PIN for the virtual card.
- Students who already have a public library card will retain their card and some students may end up with both a public card and a virtual card.
- Students living in Roseville are encouraged to upgrade their access so they can check out print materials and more. This must be done at the Roseville Public Library. A library card application with a parent or guardian signature plus photo ID verifying a current Roseville address is required.
- Teachers, regardless of residency, are encouraged to apply for a library courtesy card if they do not already have one in order to have full access to the resources available to their students.
Access is Only the Beginning:
- Encouraging students and faculty to use the resources of the public library is a critical part of the success of this program.
- Regular communication between educators and librarians will help public libraries better respond to student homework assignment needs.
- Public library summer reading and education programs help participating students maintain or increase grade and reading levels.
