Library Bridge brings digital resources to PCS students, staff

PENDER COUNTY – The Pender County Public Library and Pender County Schools have joined together to provide all students with access to the library’s digital resources through Library Bridge.

“We are excited to partner with Pender County Library in order to provide access to all of the library’s digital resources to all students who are currently enrolled in Pender County Schools,” said Dr. Beth Metcalf, Director of Elementary Student Learning and Title 1. “What this partnership will do is give students the same access they would have if they had a library card and were using it at home or with their parents through the public library.”

The Library Bridge program allows students to access e-books, downloadable audiobooks, online tutors, and more using their school username and a password provided by their homeroom teacher. The accounts are free and without overdue fines – once it is time to return the e-book or audiobook, it is automatically returned.

“Public libraries seek to nurture the joy of reading, share the power of knowledge, strengthen the sense of community and enhance cultural and economic vitality,” said Pender County Public Library Director Mike Taylor. “Our public library is excited to work closer with Pender County Schools to assist them in their goal to better prepare graduates for the world that awaits them.”

A parent letter will be sent home with students about the program during the week of Nov. 27. All students will be enrolled in this program unless families opt out of participating.
