How to sign up for a Champaign Public Library Card

  1. Click here: https://champaign.org/about/news/new-virtual-library-cards

2. Choose your library (Champaign Public Library) and type in your zip code.

3. Use correct information (if you live outside of the city limits it’s ok). All unit 4 students have access to this digital library card.

4. Your virtual library barcode number will appear on the next screen. Be sure to write it down. If you created a username and pin, you will be able to log in that way instead of using a long barcode number.

Resources

I have linked directly to a few resources that I think you will find useful and enjoyable. Please note, I don’t have a lot of familiarity with all of these resources. If you have issues, most of the pages have a quick video tutorial. Some of these sites might require you to also use an email address. Use your school email whenever possible. If you are still having trouble, contact the Champaign Public Library – librarian@champaign.org.
