Any student who either didn't have an SPPL card or had an inactive card recently completed an application to get a new library card. A library card enables students to log onto databases, ebooks, and more from anywhere there is Internet access. The library also offered our school a one-time fine-forgiveness opportunity which approximately 100 of our students took advantage of. We are so grateful to St. Paul Public Libraries for this chance to collaborate with them!
