Students who owe the library money or materials of $5.00 or more at the end of the first semester or have a negative balance at the end of the year, will have their report card and school transcripts held until their library account is in good standing.

Remote Logins and Passwords

Remote access information is available in a handout here or on the library counter in order to log onto our subscription databases. Login and password information was sent to all student Google email accounts with extension @mysclutheran.org in September. If you are unable to locate remote information on Moodle or the handout link does not give you what you need, please talk to Mrs. Lori Budahn.
