Not at all! You do not need an ECTC photo ID card to use the library. 

To check out books, you will need your 8-digit ECTC student ID number. You can locate your ID number on your class schedule or in Peoplesoft. 

To use the online databases, you will need to log in with your ECTC email address & password. 

If you have saved your login information on your device, you should not need to log in.
