Summit County libraries launch program allowing district student and faculty IDs to serve as library cards

This month, Summit School District students and faculty will be able to use their district IDs as library cards.

The program, known as “One Community, One Card,” is a collaboration between the library and district that has been years in the making, according to a news release. It now gives students and faculty access to digital resources, books, DVDs and all other library materials whether they already had a library card or not.

The library also continues to offer options for children homeschooled or enrolled outside the Summit School District with a youth library card account. And for all of September, in recognition of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, patrons can replace their library cards for free.
