CAC Reader for Military Personnel Now Available @ Tomball College & Community Library

CAC ReaderWritten by Barbara M

LSC-Tomball Community Library is proud to announce that we have acquired a Common Access Card reader or CAC reader for military personnel to use in the library so they can access the particular websites that only a Common Access Card will allow. This reader will enable active duty and reserve military to conduct online military business locally instead of having to travel to a military base/facility. With a CAC reader, a service member can access websites to do online training, check military email, create orders and travel vouchers, apply for billets, access unit sharepoint sites, and more.
