Highland ConnectED

What is the ConnectED card? 

The ConnectED card is a student library card from Selover Public Library. You can use it to get books, eBooks, and more. You don’t ever have to worry about overdue fines with your ConnectED card. If you already have a regular library card, the ConnectED card gives you ten additional eBook checkouts.

 

What do I do first? 

Now that you have your ConnectED card, your first step is to change your temporary password to your 4-digit Highland student ID.

How to change your password:

  1. Go to cool-cat.org.

  2. Click My Account in the upper right corner.

  3. Enter your library card number and temporary password.

  4. Click on Account Preferences.

  5. For Password, click Change.

  6. Type your temporary password in Current Password, your student ID number in New Password, and click Submit. Now you are able to access all the cool stuff your ConnectEd card makes available to you.

The ConnectED program from Selover Library and Highland Local Schools was spotlighted in OhioNET's January 2021 newsletter with the headline "Selover Public Library and Highland Local Schools Team Up for Student Success."
