Helping students succeed in school is a shared educator and Library priority. We are here to support you in your important work with the resources below. If there is another way we can help, please call us at 419.259.5200 to discuss your needs or ideas.

Getting Library cards for all students is a top Toledo Lucas County Public Library goal! It’s easy for your school to participate:

  • Send an Excel spreadsheet with each student’s name, address, school ID number, and birth date to susan.roudebush@toledolibrary.org
  • We will send you an email to confirm that the accounts have been created and directions about creating a PIN.
  • Students can then access all of the Library’s digital resources through our website.
  • Students can visit any  location to pick up a free physical Library card using their school ID number. This will allow them to check out physical materials.
  • Some of your students will already have cards, and they can continue to use those cards instead of, or in addition to, these new cards. If they don’t remember their Library card number, they or their parents can call any location for help.

The Library offers  field trips, classroom visits, and virtual visits.
