Learning at Home

For students and parents at Garrett County Public Schools we offer:

  • Fine free student cards are available to all currently enrolled students.  These are based on the student's lunch number using the format GCPSXXXX, with the lunch number in place of the XXXX. The password is the four-digit lunch number by itself.  Students can use their Student Card to check out up to 3 books without late fees.
  • The Library's books can be used for the 100 Book Challenge offered for K-5 students - stock up with us!
  • The Library also has current GCPS textbooks on reserve at each branch for parents and students to use if needed (coming soon)
