Families have access to many non-consumable items through the Lending Library! You can check out children’s picture books, novels, games, puzzles, and Science, Language Arts, History, and Math curriculum. The Lending Library is a free resource to families.

The Lending Library hosts CONNECT events that are free, flexible and frequent including: weekly Storytime & Craft Club, weekly visits to parks with our mobile library van, and monthly thematic events or presentations.

How do I set up my student’s library account?

Note: If you have multiple students, each student will have their own account and you will need to repeat the following steps for each one.

1) Go to the library website

2) Select “Sign In”

3) Type in your student’s ID # where it says Sign In/Barcode (that 5 digit number can be found attached to your student’s name on Procurify or you can reach out to your HST). Do not enter a password the FIRST TIME. The site does not require one.

4) Click Sign In. You are able to search and put books on hold from here.

5) If you would like to add a password, click My Account. Click “Change Login/ Password” – There you can create a password for your student

Your student’s LOCAL ID will be the username moving forward, so make sure you have that info saved somewhere.
