Oak Harbor Public Schools is pleased to announce a partnership with Sno-Isle Libraries granting public library resources automatically to each K-12 student.
The program, being piloted by OHPS and Granite Falls School District, removes barriers for all students to receive a comprehensive list of resources courtesy of the public library system.
While many students in Oak Harbor enjoy free access to the public library, many students have yet to create accounts. This program automatically enrolls each child through information provided by the school district. There are no costs to families and accounts come with no overdue/late fees. Still, families will have the opportunity to opt-out of the agreement at any time.
Each student account comes with a variety of benefits. Each student may check out up to 10 physical books or DVDs and 20 digital downloads (eBooks and Audiobooks) at a time. Access to live one-on-one homework help, writing lab and online research databases are also available at any time with remote login.
In the coming weeks, families will receive an email detailing the program and information on accessing their student’s account. If a student misplaces their login information, all they need to do is just provide their last name at the library.
“Sno-Isle Libraries is excited to partner with Oak Harbor Public Schools to provide even more students with access to public library resources that will benefit them in and beyond the classroom, Jennifer Sullivan, Lead Librarian, Student Success said.”
This program is in complete compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and no additional information will be shared with the library. Families can learn more about the program by visiting the Sno-Isle Student Account website.
