New Mary M. Knight District and the Timberland Library (TRL) Portal

We are excited to share that the Mary M. Knight District and the Timberland Regional Library (TRL) have formed a partnership to provide students access to a wider range and depth of information via the library's vast electronic services collection. MyTRL allows for students to view and check out electronic library resources (ebooks and audiobooks) that are automatically returned. There are also many databases available. Students can also upgrade their online only library card to a regular library card with a parent's permission and verification of the address and contact information. Students who already have a regular TRL card may continue to use it as well as the MMK digital card. Mrs. Henson will be teaching students about what is available in her library classes.

Parents may choose to opt out of the MyTRL program at any time by contacting the school office.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MYTRL: Students should bookmark the link to MyTRL by clicking on the star in the far right side of the URL box where the web address goes. They will be prompted to name and save the bookmark. They should call it MyTRL. When they enter their password, they should save their username and password so they don't need to put it in when asked again. Some of the databases will ask for the username and password again, so saving it is essential.

Students access it with the following login:

  • USERNAME: MMK student ID + birth month (2 digits) + birth year (4 digits)

  • PIN: birth month + birth day

Example of a student login:

Birthday 04/30/2008, MMK #0012345

Username: 0012345042008

Password: 0430
