Big picture

Connect ED Library Card Partnership | Richland Library and Richland School District One

Richland Library and Richland One have partnered to provide a library card for every student in the district. This project is part of the nationwide initiative: Leaders Library Card Challenge.

A parent/guardian must complete the online form for their child if under 13.

Middle and High Students | A library account has been created for every student using their Student ID number. The PIN is the last four numbers of your student ID number. These accounts do not need to be activated; they are live and ready to be used.

Find the latest information about available library services at


· Parent/Guardians of middle and high students were given the option to “opt out” of this partnership during school registration. Accounts were not created for students who “opted out”. If you do want a library card, you can apply for one using the online form: It will be a normal library account, not a Student ID account.

· For any questions about the ConnectED program and these library accounts, contact Richland Library:
