MAY 29, 2019 - Thanks to a new partnership between Shakopee Public Schools and the Scott County Library, Shakopee High School students will receive a fine-free virtual library card. This collaboration, called the Virtual Student Library Card, ensures public library resources can be a part of every student's learning experience.
Students can benefit from access to the vast resources available through the public library, including online tutoring and homework help, research tools, eBooks, audiobooks, electronic magazines, language learning tools, and print books. This virtual card will also allow for the checkout of two physical library items.
Our pilot group for this partnership began May 13th, 2019, and includes next year’s 9th-12th grade students. In the 2019-2020 school year, the partnership will extend to middle and elementary school students, so stay tuned for dates and details.
