NC Kids Student Access

Welcome Students!

Vance County Schools students have access to the library through your Student ID number!

*Remember, your username/library card number is your Student ID# and your PIN is the last four digits of your student ID.

What is StudentAccess?

StudentAccess is an initiative that partners NC Cardinal libraries and school systems to provide access to library materials. Participating school system’s students will be provided a student library account using their student ID number as their account number. The student library account allows participating students to access print and online materials from the partner NC Cardinal library system.


Question: How will a student use their student ID account?

Answer: Students will use their school ID number and PIN to borrow books or access the library’s services like e-books and online research. The default PIN is the last 4 digits of the student ID number.

Question: What can a student do with a student ID account?

Answer: Student ID accounts allow students to borrow e-resources and access library databases just like any other Perry Memorial Library card. Students can also borrow up to 10 print or audio books from the Perry Memorial Library collection. You cannot check out DVDs or equipment with a StudentAccess account. StudentAccess accounts can place holds for Perry Memorial Library materials, but not items from other NC Cardinal libraries.

Question: Is the student account free?

Answer: Yes, the student account is free. There are no overdue fines for student accounts, but students are responsible for any fees on lost or damaged books.

Question: How do I sign my child up for a student ID account?

Answer: Vance County Schools students are automatically enrolled in the StudentAccess initiative.

Question: What if I don’t want my child to have a student ID account?

Answer: If you do not want your child to have access to library materials, then fill out the Opt-Out Form.
