KIT Cards

PCIN and Huron County Library system have partnered with the Avon Maitland District School Board in a pilot project which will put­ a public library card in the hands of every student. ­A library card will­ arm ­students with a reliable source of information while also hoping to build literacy skills and promote a love of reading. ­All students from kindergarten to grade 12 will be given a library registration form which, once completed, will provide them with a card to access all of the libraries' resources.

About the Cards

  • All students will receive a registration package to fill out at the beginning of the school year or at a new registration
  • If the student already has a library card, their record will be update and any existing late fees will be forgiven­ (one time only). This does not apply to lost items.
  • If the student has a lost card, they will be given a new card at no cost (one time only)
  • New library cards will be issued by November 2015.
