As many of you know, we recently launched our new TSCPL @ School service. We have received all the 2019-2020 student enrollment information from participating schools and have created digital accounts for students. Here is a list of the participating schools:
- Topeka USD 501 District (all schools)
- Shawnee Heights District (all schools)
- Hayden High School
- Washburn Rural Middle and High School
Please read over the TSCPL @ School page on our public website. It offers basic information on the service. As you’ll notice, students are encouraged to contact their school librarian or TSCPL staff with questions so you might receive calls in the call center or emails via LibAnswers asking questions about the service.
If you receive a question that goes beyond the basics of using a TSCPL @ School account, please refer the question to the group email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a form on the TSCPL @ School web page that staff and customers can use to contact the team.
What digital resources can I access?
Check out the TSCPL @ School page on our public website for a list.
How do I log on to the library’s digital resources?
Your school district code and your student ID number works as your library card number. Your PIN is your expected graduation year.
- 437 – Auburn Washburn Middle & High School
- 501 – Topeka USD 501 Schools
- 8572 – Hayden High School
- 450 – Shawnee Heights Schools
Can I check out books and movies from the library or a bookmobile?
Yes! All TSCPL @ School students can check out up to 5 items on their account. You can type in your digital card information into a kiosk at the main library or get help checking out with staff on the bookmobiles. Your school district code and your student ID number works as your library card number. Assigned PIN is your expected graduation year.
Can I get a library card too?
Yes! Students who participate in TSCPL @ School are eligible to get a physical library card. The physical library card will be a different library account and is governed by circulation guidelines. Staff should not change any barcode information for TSCPL @ School accounts.
Can I use my TSCPL @ School account to log onto the library’s computers?
Yes! Your TSCPL @ School account allows you access the library’s computers for three hours every day. To log on use your school district code and your student ID number as your library card number. Your PIN is your expected graduation year.
I see my school isn’t participating. Can I sign my school or district up for TSCPL @ School service?
We are not adding any new districts or schools for 2019-2020 (Please refer requests to email@example.com or Paul Brennan at ext. 4420).
