ASD Student Information

New this school year, all students enrolled in the Anacortes School District will now be able to use their student ID card as their public library card.

Our partnership with the ASD provides many benefits:

  • Access to thousands of library materials - print and digital resources. 
  • Expectation of responsibility. Students will be taught the requirements of using the student card as part of their digital curriculum.
  • Access is expanded to all students, not just those who live inside city limits.
