For most schools, your student number now works as a library card number. It’s your very own library card!

If you are a student at a participating Shawnee County school, you already have a library card! That means you can check out books, movies, & digital resources like online databases, digital ebooks, digital audio and streaming videos!

Get your homework done faster and easier!

You can access our electronic resources 24/7! Find great books to read, download or stream. Or visit the library to use the internet, print or check out a book to read. We even have a growing collection of apps to download to your mobile device.

What are you waiting for? There is an entire library for you to explore and you already have access.

Resources for Students

How does it work?

Your library card is your school district number followed by your student ID number. You’ll also need your PIN to check out library materials and access digital resources. Your initial PIN is your graduation year. If you have trouble logging in, ask your school librarian or contact us at school@tscpl.libanswers.com, call 785-580-4400 or text 785-322-4099.
