Student Success Initiative

  • Capital Area District Libraries logo

    Capital Area District Libraries (CADL) is partnering with Haslett Public Schools to help students easily access all the education and entertainment options available at CADL’s 13 branches, Mobile Library and online collections. Through the Student Success Initiative (SSI), all students will receive a free CADL SSI library card no matter where they live, even if they already have a regular CADL card.

    Getting & Using a Card:
    The account is created by adding the letters HAS to your student’s school username (the one they use to log in to the computer at school).  For example, a student with a school username of 25smithma would have a CADL “library card” number of HAS25smithma. Your student can use this card number to use the digital services at  They can also use it at any CADL branch - or show their student ID - to check out up to five books, audiobooks, or magazines at a time. 

    Account Rules

    • Some library items cannot be checked out with this type of account.
    • CADL does not charge overdue fines. Borrowers are responsible for returning checked-out items to a CADL branch.
    • Parents/guardians have permission to obtain account information. To access a student account, parents/guardians must be able to provide their student’s school username.
    • Account notices are sent to the student's school email address. Younger students may not have active email accounts. Parents/Guardians may update contact information and overdue notice options by calling or visiting any CADL branch.

    Option to Opt Out
    Having a student success account requires the release of directory information (student name, student school computer username, student and parent email addresses, home phone number and address) to CADL.  Any parent/guardian who does NOT want their student to have an account can opt-out by completing the online Opt Out Form by September 8, 2023.
