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.
