MEDIA MOMENT: A+ STUDENT CARD
Does your student have a library card? The answer is yes for all students!! Howard County Library System and Howard County Public School System have launched a new A+ STUDENT CARD to make it easier for all students to access HCLS eContent in the classroom, at home, or anywhere they need to do homework or research. The new A+ initiative delivers HCLS' extensive catalogue of eContent directly to the classroom.The A+ card is a virtual card. It can be accessed by having your student login into the public library via the hcpss.me site. Students will need to login using their technology username and password. Once logged in, the student's name and a scannable barcode will appear. This will allow for students to use the services online (the online account will automatically authenticate by following these steps). To use the card in person, just repeat the process on a smartphone and present the barcode during checkout. During media classes students have been/will be shown how to access their card.
