Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, the LSR7 School District partnered with Mid-Continent Public Library so that every student has a Mid-Content Public Library card. Below is an email from Mid-Continent explaining the details and a bit about some of the many awesome resources students can access via MCPL.
The short version though is this,
Students' MCPL Library Card = LS1234567 (Capital LS+Lunch Number)
MCPL PIN = MMDDYYYY (Eight digit birthday)
During this critical time when you and your students and their caregivers need help the most, Mid-Continent Public Library provides access to a wide range of online resources that can help with schoolwork at home. As you contact your students, please remind them that they can use the Library virtually with their Student Access Passes (Library card).
You can help your students begin using their Access Passes today!
The Lee's Summit School District has chosen a special format for Student Access Pass numbers, which gives access to Mid-Continent Public Library’s online resources:
“LS” + student ID number (i.e., LS1234567)
By using their Student Access Pass numbers, your students can use the following from home:
Online Resources: MCPL has more than 200 online resources that can be used for research, school projects, online learning, and more. One such resource is Live Homework Help from Tutor.com, which is available in English and Spanish and connects students with a live tutor who can assist them in a variety of subjects. When accessing any online resource on mymcpl.org, type in the student’s Access Pass number using the format above.
Digital Content: The Library provides a wealth of materials that can be downloaded or streamed, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMovies from OverDrive; eMagazines from RBdigital and Flipster; eNewspapers from PressReader; and eMusic from Freegal Music and other free resources. Access these and others at mymcpl.org/GoDigital.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our branches in the near future.
*All students are eligible for a student ID-based account unless their parents opted out during this year’s school registration.
