Back to School with the Library

A library card is your child’s ticket to academic achievement.

Back-to-School is a time when the Carnegie Public Library joins with our local educators to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a free library card. 
Students & educators can use their library cards from home, too. Our library offers access to important educational resources, like our online book/e-book catalogs, online homework databases, and college and career testing resources.
Below is more information on getting a library card and how-to use our online library resources.
