September is Library Card Sign-up Month

The Public Library of Union County and Union County Public Schools are excited to announce a new program called LEAP (Libraries and Educators as Partners).  Students can now access electronic materials such as e-books, digital audiobooks, magazines and databases with their UCPS information. Their student ID number becomes their library card number and their PIN number is their year of birth.

Not only will UCPS students have increased access electronically but they also can use their student account at any of the four branches of the public library.  With their student information they will be able to check out anything except DVDs and they can check out up to 10 items. Their checkout period is for 3 weeks and they will have no fees except for lost or damaged items.

Students will learn about their new access during visits to the media center.
