My student has a Connect Card. What does that mean?

What is the difference between the Connect Card and a regular library card?

Connect Cards are separate from other library cards, and provide digital-only access to eResources, eBooks, and eAudiobooks to students. They can not be used for checking out physical materials from the library. This does not replace any other public library card your student/child may have.

Is there any financial risk to my child/student having a Connect Card?

Because the Connect Card provides access to digital resources only, there are no fines or fees associated with the account.

What resources will my child/student be able to access for free with their Connect Card?

Connect Card offers access to all eResources and eMedia with the exception of Tumblebooks and Hoopla. This includes free access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, articles, eMagazines, music, dozens of databases and more. There are materials in different reading levels and languages and are accessible from school and home. For a full list of resources, including descriptions, please visit the ConnectFVRL homepage.

Is the library monitoring what my student/child is checking out or accessing?

The library does not monitor materials or resources accessed through the Connect Card. We encourage you to talk to your student/child about how they are using their card.

How can I opt-out or opt-back-in to the Connect Card for my child?

Students from participating school districts are automatically enrolled in the ConnectFVRL program. However, we realize that some families may wish not to participate. To opt-out or to opt-back-in to the ConnectFVRL program,  please contact your child’s school directly.
