Rochester Hills Public Library Offers a Library Card for Every Child

The Rochester Hills Public Library has partnered with the Rochester Community School District to issue every child, K-12, a library card and expand the resources available to all students.

“We want to make sure that all students have access to the wonderful services available through the public library,” said library director Christine Lind Hage. “And the great news is that it’s all free of charge!”

The Rochester Hills Public Library is committed to making 24/7 access to information and knowledge a fact of life for every child enrolled in school.

“Our goal here is to expand literacy-learning opportunities for all students,” said Rochester Community School District Superintendent Robert Shaner. “A partnership with the Rochester Hills Public Library enables students to have access to additional resources, programs, expertise, and support outside of the classroom.”

A unique feature of this project is that is now fully automated, explained Hage. Privacy, which includes the segregation of school and library data, is a primary consideration which is critical to protect student confidentiality.

According to the press release, anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Rochester, Rochester Hills, and Oakland Township is eligible for a free library card. Individuals can apply online at  or they may apply in person at the library.

The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester off of University Drive and three blocks east of Main Street.  The Library is open from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.  The Library’s website has information on how to register for a card and access all the Library’s services.
