How the Partnership Works:

  • Every student and school employee in Roseville Community Schools will be issued a virtual library card.  Students will use the prefix “RCS” followed by their Roseville school ID number as the library card number. The school ID number is also sometimes known as the lunch code. School employees will use the prefix “RCS” followed by their employee number as the library card number.
  • The four-digit PIN for students will be the birthday month and day. The four digit PIN for employees will be the last four digits of their employee identification number.  Students and employees can contact the library if they are having trouble logging into the digital resources with their virtual library card.
  • Students and employees who already have a traditional or courtesy library card will retain their card and some may end up with both a traditional or courtesy 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.
  • Employees outside of Roseville 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. Employees residing in Roseville are encouraged to apply for a traditional card.

Access is Only the Beginning:

  • Encouraging students and employees 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.
