Looking to make it easier for your students to access POWER Library e-resources from home? Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication is now available for school districts using Google or Clever as their SSO platform.

No more eCards or library cards!
SSO eliminates the need for students to enter library cards or eCard numbers.
What will it cost my school to make SSO available?
Public school districts will have no separate fee to add SSO authentication. However, each school in your district must participate in POWER Library. For private schools, there is a small annual fee to add SSO authentication.
