Tech Cards

Brought to us by the Bentonville Public Library

What is the Tech Card Program?

Bentonville Public Library (BPL) is excited to partner with the Bentonville School District to provide your students with a BPL Tech Card for in-school and in-home use. The cards will be utilized to access free educational resources through a dedicated portal created just for students on the library's website. www.bentonvillelibrary.org


Some grades have chosen to send the cards home, and others keep them at school. Your child's teacher may have sent a copy of their card home. If you have a Bentonville Public Library card of your own, you can access all of these great resources using that card as well!

Student Portal

Below are a few of the resources, for K-4, that are provided to your children through the Tech Card Program. Most of these resources will be used in their classrooms, but some that can provide useful activities at home as well.
