What is your most important school supply? A Will Rogers Library card! Whether you’re headed back to school, considering continuing education, or just interested in learning more about your current hobby or career, a library card gives students and adults access to a wide variety of educational resources available both within the library and online. Online access to free resources such as GCF LearnFree,, EBSCO, Universal Class, DigitalLearn, the KHAN Academy and more can all be accessed from the Will Rogers Library’s website 24/7 under the ‘Websites for Library Customers’ links, making it easy to supplement a child’s school activities, prepare for the ACT's and SAT's, or help adults complete their continuing education or prepare for a career change. Be sure to check out the library website at for a wide assortment of print and online educational materials to help students of any age reach their goals.

Parents take note!

Students planning on coming to the library after school should have an active library card on file and be in good standing in order to use the library. Throughout the month of August, the library will waive the normal replacement card fee of $2.00 for anyone age 17 and under who has lost their library card and needs a replacement before the school year begins. Of course, if students have never had a library card, the first card is always free! For their first library card, a parent or legal guardian will need to accompany children under 18 in order to fill out a library card application.
