    Dear Middle School Parents and Guardians,


    I am excited about working with Middle School students in the library this year.


    I have a lot of ideas for my class. One focus will be on Digital Literacy.  In order to do this, I am asking all of the middle school students, with your permission, to obtain an e-Card for PA Power Library.  We will practice effective research skills in class using this site.  The site has many resources as well as connects to Cumberland County and Dauphin County libraries. The sources will be different from a “Google Search”...more reliable and experts have checked them…however, no Internet database is perfect.


    Because PA Power Library has to confirm residency in Pennsylvania and your child is under the age of 18,  I can’t do it in class.


    Please go on to the PA Power Library site:

    • https://powerlibrary.org/ecard/u18/\

    • Fill in the form with your email and residency information.

    • Your child will use their school email address as their email for the eCard. (first initial and last name @sainttheresaschool.org) Example: drichard@sainttheresaschool.org

    • After you complete the form and submit it, you will receive an email that says "POWER Library eCard Notice".  This email will take a day or so for you to receive.

    • The eCard will be sent through your CHILD’s email.  I will allow students to access their school email to obtain their eCard number during library class.  They will forward their card number to me so I have a copy.

    Thank you for your assistance in this matter.  Please email me if you do not want your child to obtain an eCard for PA Power Library.

    Mrs. Richard
