Public Library Partnership


Polk County Schools and the Public Library work as educational partners providing students with access to books, computers, reading programs, and dozens of other important educational resources during out-of-school time.

Additionally, both organizations have aligned around a focus on literacy and are committed to creating a community of readers, empowering individuals with free access to information, building a welcoming place where reading, learning and imagination thrive, maximizing academic achievement, and preparing every child to lead a rich and productive life.

How does this benefit my student?

  • You child’s school issued student number will be integrated into the public library’s system so that they have automatic, digital library cards to access the library’s physical and digital materials, including their databases.

Does it cost anything?

  • The program is completely free of charge

How do I sign my child up?

  • There is no need to apply.  Your child’s name and student number will be shared with the library system to ensure access.

Can I opt-out of the program?

  • Yes.  If you do not wish to have your child’s information shared with the public library, please take a moment to fill out the “Opt-Out” form located on this page.  You can opt out of the program at any time.
