King County Library Student Accounts!
So exciting! The King County Library and the Issaquah School District have begun a partnership to allow our students access to a variety of resources online. The students will learn more about these accounts this year. Each child has a student account. The username is the number 411 (our district number) followed by the child's 7-digit student ID. (If their student number begins with an 8, include a leading 0 before the 8). The password is the last 4 digits of the student ID. Students will have access to eBooks, databases and more.
We Also Have eBooks at Grand Ridge!
Students at Grand Ridge have the ability to check out some of our fantastic eBooks! We currently own about 300 titles. Students need internet access, their user name and password.
