From Marina Del Rey Patch

” Students at Virginia Road Elementary School received library cards this week to begin a Los Angeles Public Library effort to provide the cards to every Los Angeles Unified School District student over the next three years.Mayor Eric Garcetti, LAUSD Superintendent Michelle King and Board of Education President Steve Zimmer joined city Librarian John Szabo to distribute cards to the students, beginning the Student Success partnership between the district and the library.Library officials said the Student Success program will provide library cards to students, allowing them to check up as many as three books at a time — with no fees charged if the students fail to return the books on time. Once the books are returned, they will be able to check out additional titles.”
