King County Library Student Accounts
The King County Library and the Issaquah School District have a partnership to allow our students access to a variety of resources online. 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.
