Glendale City Student Library Cards

Good Evening Keppel Families,

We are excited to announce an amazing opportunity for our students.  Glendale City Library is offering a free Student Library Card to each of our students.

The library card is such a gift to our students in GUSD.  It offers a wide range of services and features that our students will be able to access all at absolutely no charge! The library card will provide each student the following services:

Borrow up to 100 library items at any of the Glendale or Pasadena Public Library locations
Borrow FREE e-books and audio books
Have access to FREE newspapers and magazine articles online
Learn and practice up to 52 foreign languages for FREE
Use computers and Wi-Fi for FREE at any Glendale Library
Free tutoring in English and Spanish
The student library card is unique in that there are no fees for lost items. This card also will grant access to special reading challenges and online programming geared towards students. Having the cards batched together as a school or class set will allow us to easily communicate with students and we’d be able to work directly with faculty to curate and share booklists, specialized programming, project assistance, and outreach that is specific to the class’ needs.

While the cards do have many similarities to the general library card, the specialized items and communication we wish to offer through our children’s librarians is invaluable. 

The great news is every child will receive a library card UNLESS YOU OPT OUT by completing the attached form. If you want your child to have access to a card, you don't need to do anything!

TO OPT OUT FILL OUT ONE OF THE FORMS ON THE APP OR IN OUR EMAIL.
