Normally, these resources and databases require a paid subscription. However, due to generous sponsorship by One Valley Community Foundation, Greater Gallatin United Way, and Belgrade Community Library Foundation, all you need to access these resources is your active Belgrade Community Library card and unique PIN.
These services require a permanent BCL card – an online or digital card will not work. Please contact the library if you have questions or need to get your permanent card.
No email address is required to use these resources, however some of the features would be better experienced after providing an email address within the system. For example, Miss Humblebee’s Academy offers weekly emailed reports of how your student or child is progressing. Again, only provide your email if you want to take advantage of these optional services.
