Free Online Library Materials

Thanks to Valerie for making this information available:

We just got word that all Wenatchee School District students can now access the online resources of North Central Regional Library.

There are thousands of dollars worth of online resources free for WSD students! Students can access these resources from home, or you can have every student in your class access these online resources in our school computer labs.

Login information

Students can log in to the North Central Regional Library website using their 7-digit ID number as the username and password.

Attention Students: Do not log in where it says Account Login. Valerie tried doing this with a student ID# and it does not work. Here's what you need to do instead...

Login process
  • Students should click on the "Research and Homework" tab.
  • Students can then choose one of the resources on this web page (see list below).
  • At this point, students will be asked to enter their username and password.
  • They will now enter their student ID number for both the username and the password.
