Virtual Library Card

UCS has a Partnership with Local Libraries for Free Virtual Library Card!

Virtual Library Cards grant access to most of the library’s electronic services without needing to apply for a traditional library card. This is a wonderful opportunity to have access to thousands of books without ever having to leave the comfort of your home! Virtual Library Cards are given to all the students in Utica Community Schools for FREE.
