Virtual Library Cards

What Does the Card Do?

Virtual library cards grant access to most of the library's electronic services without needing to apply for a traditional library card. Virtual library cards are given to all the students and teachers in a participating school district. At this time, the library has partnered with Utica Community Schools and Warren Consolidated Schools.
