Library Port program

(If the student ID number is 5 digits, please add a zero before the first number. For example, 12345 becomes 012345)

Free resources for student success.

The Library Port program connects students to one-on-one online homework help, dozens of research databases, e-books, electronic magazines, and so much more. Always free, and now integrated into your child’s curriculum. Duluth Public Library is Free From Fines.

Easy and secure.

All new Library Port cards will contain an easy to remember number based on existing student IDs. Physical library cards will not be issued, eliminating the potential for private information to be compromised.

Parents choose.

Parents can easily opt-in to this program. Simply complete the opt-in form that was given to you by ISD 709. Existing student library cards will not be replaced by the Library Port card.
