School Partnerships

More than ever, students need access to reputable, high-quality online resources and eBooks. 

We work with several school districts to provide students with Virtual Student Library Card accounts they can use in and out of the classroom. These accounts help us all work together to ensure students succeed and have more voice and choice in what they read.

  • These accounts are designed for classroom use. If your child already has a Scott County Library card, wonderful! This account does not replace it. 
  • Student cards grant access to all of the Library's online resources and eBook collections, and 2 physical items.
  • The accounts are fine-free, but students are expected to pay for lost or damaged physical items. 

To learn how to your child may use their card, please check your district's information below. To opt out, please contact your school district's technology department.
