If wintry weather keeps your child indoors during the break… Remember, there’s something for everyone at the library! With BRANCH OUT!, a partnership between GCPS and the Gwinnett County Public Library (GCPL) a student's school ID doubles as a GCPL library card, giving access to the county's extensive collection of digital and print resources and a range of activities for students who opt into the program. Even better, overdue library fines are a thing of the past for Branch Out participants. If parents are unsure if their student has an account or if a student is new to GCPS, it’s easy to opt in on the Parent Portal (edit preferences on the Student Information screen) or complete a form to return to the school. To access library resources, participating students need their GCPS ID number and a PIN (preset for birth month and day as MMDD). Students may change their PIN anytime via the GCPL website or by calling or visiting any library branch. So, happy reading (playing, surfing, building, listening, and learning) during the Winter Break!
