To encourage access and awareness of the public library resources for students, WBRL offers free library cards for all students through their classroom teacher.
WBRL can provide a classroom teacher with an electronic student library card application form to print and distribute to their students.
Students under the age of 16 must take the form home and have it completed and signed by parents/guardians.
Teachers can collect the completed forms, scan and send by email to email@example.com. Staff will create cards for the students within 10-14 days and deliver them to the school for the classroom teacher to distribute to students.
Library cards are free and allow access to all of our physical (books, media, video games, kits, etc.) when students visit the library, as well as access to all of our online resources (including eBooks and educational resources such as SOLARO).
WBRL staff can visit your school/class to promote literacy and to showcase our collections and online resources. All sessions are free and can be tailored to suit the specific needs of the classroom or event. To schedule a visit please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
With an educator card, teachers can request a number of titles to supplement their classroom library, focus on a topic of study, or materials for a specific age group using the Classroom Collection Request form. WBRL will drop off the materials to the school and pick them up when the class is finished with them. Visit our Educator page for more information.
