How are student accounts created?
Sno-Isle Libraries has a signed Memorandum of Understanding with participating school districts that allows a district to transfer student information to Sno-Isle Libraries so that student accounts can be created. Student information will not be transferred if a parent/guardian has completed the opt-out form. This program is in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Can I use a student account to access computers or print in the library?
Yes. Just like a traditional card, a student account number can be used to log in to library computers and check out a library laptop. You can also print and/or copy in black and white or color. For additional information, go to https://www.sno-isle.org/help/pcprint/.
How much does a student account cost? Are there fines?
Student accounts are free. There are no overdue fines.
How long will my student account be active? Does it expire?
Student accounts work until a student is no longer enrolled in the school district, such as graduating or leaving the district. When a student is no longer enrolled, they may be eligible for a traditional Sno-Isle Libraries card.
Will student accounts work in the summer when school is on break?
Yes. Student accounts can be used year-round.
What if a student already has a Sno-Isle Libraries card?
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. Students who do not yet have a traditional library card may obtain one after completing the registration process.
Can parents or guardians choose for their student to opt out of this program?
Yes. Parents and guardians can opt out of the student account program by completing an opt out form provided by the school district. Parents and guardians may also request to delete student accounts at any time.
Can new students in the district get a student account?
