Harford County Public Library (HCPL) and Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) have partnered to create a digital library card link, called HCPL Student Link, for every student in HCPS in grades Prekindergarten-12. Students may access the library’s online resources by using their HCPS student ID number.  

“We are so pleased to collaborate with Harford County Public Schools by providing every student a digital library card link,” said Mary Hastler, CEO of Harford County Public Library. “The HCPL Student Link is an easy and seamless way for students to access the wide variety of online resources the library offers. We provide resources for students of all ages plus their parents and educators.”

The virtual student access card link allows pupils who are enrolled in the Harford County Public School system to access the all the library’s online resources, from anywhere, on any device. Students can download books, listen to music, do research, take classes, learn a new language, access videos, get free online tutoring and much more. A short video outlining the resources may be found at hcplonline.org/schoolsupportcentral.php.

For more than 75 years, Harford County Public Library has provided its communities with access to ideas that inform, entertain and inspire. Last year the library interacted with its residents more than  12 million times – borrowing free materials, visiting branches and the website, using free WiFi and attending classes and events.
