What Is It?
Manitowoc Public Library, in partnership with Manitowoc Public School District is proud to announce Virtual Library Cards! What does this mean you ask? Well, any student and staff within MPSD will automatically have a Virtual Library Card that gives them access to a wide range of digital resources offered by the Library.
What Can It Do?
Regardless of whether or not you have a personal library card, or if that card is blocked for any reason, these Virtual Library Cards will allow students to access online databases, check out ebooks and digital magazines (not physical ones, though), and use the public computers at the library.
How Will It Work?
What is my Virtual Library Card number then? The Virtual Library Card is based on the student’s school ID with a predefined set of numbers in front of it. Say your student ID is 999999, your Virtual Library Card number would be 12345000999999. For staff, if your staff ID is 88888, your Virtual Library Card would be 12345000088888. Your PIN number is the first 4 digits of your PersonID from InfiniteCampus. Below is a list of websites where the students and staff can use these Virtual Library Cards to access online resources.
