OHPS & Sno-Isle Libraries Partnersip
Oak Harbor Public Schools and Sno-Isle Libraries have established a pilot partnership to give K-12 students automatic access to public library resources using their lunch pins. The program officially launches, Tuesday, March 10.
This new and FREE service allows our students to...
- Check out up to 10 physical items, such as books or DVDs, at any library
- Download 20 digital items (eBooks or eAudiobooks) at a time
- Access digital resources, including live homework help and research databases
- Use computers with filtered internet access at any library
(This is in addition to, and separate from, a library card that a student may already have. If a student already has a traditional Sno-Isle Libraries card, they will continue to be able to use it in addition to their student account.)
To enable student library accounts, Oak Harbor Public Schools will share basic student information with Sno-Isle Libraries to create the accounts. This process is in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and no other student data will be shared.
If you would like your child to access public library resources using their OHPS lunch pins, you do not need to do anything. Your child will automatically receive access beginning on March 10. If you do not want your student to access public library resources, please complete the online Opt-Out Form via Skyward Family Access.
We have a variety of resources available to help you learn more.
If you have any questions, please visit the Sno-Isle website. You can also contact Jennifer Sullivan, Student Success Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Jane Lopez-Santillana, Oak Harbor Library Manager (jlopez-santillana@sno-isle.
We are excited to give our students greater access to resources that will help them succeed in school and beyond.
