POWER Library Cost-Savings

Inform Your Communities, Boards, and Stakeholders How POWER Library Saves Your Institution Money!

Statewide contracts for POWER Library resources are paid by the Pennsylvania Department of Education/Office of Commonwealth Libraries. In turn, your school or library benefits by not having to purchase these databases from local funds. Learn what your school or library saves by participating in POWER Library by viewing the infographic for your institution type, and share it widely!

There is no additional fee to add SSO authentication for public school districts. However, every school in the district must participate in POWER Library. Private schools will be assessed a small annual fee to add SSO authentication.
