Student OneCard

What is the Student OneCard Program?

Through a unique partnership with the Napa County Library, NVUSD Library Services is able to provide students access to public library resources using their student ID number.

  • All NVUSD students IDs serve as a Napa County Library card
  • Students have full access to Napa County Library resources
  • Students are automatically enrolled in the program unless a parent choose to opt-out of this service.
  • Service to new students is activated at the beginning of each school year after a brief period to allow parents to opt-out if desired (usually by the first of October). 
  • Continuing students retain access year-to year until they graduate or leave NVUSD.

The Student OneCard Program allows NVUSD students to…

  • Borrow up to 5 items from any Napa County Library location.
  • Receive free on-line, one-on-one homework tutoring in English or Spanish in all major subjects.
  • Use public library computers at any of the four library locations.
  • Request books from partner libraries, including academic collections.
  • Use and download music, eBooks, magazines and other electronic resources 24/7 via the Napa County Library website.

Note: Parents are responsible for their children’s use of library resources.

How to Use the OneCard to access Napa County Library Resources...

  • When prompted for your library card number, use the prefix "nvusd" in front of your six-digit student ID number (eg., nvusd123456). Some resources require that you use all caps (e.g.NVUSD123456) so try both if you are denied access.
  • Most products do not require it but IF asked for a PIN enter your date of birth [month day year] using 8 digits, no spaces or slashes. (e.g. for May 7, 2011: 05072011).
  • Report difficulties here
  • Ask your teacher if you do not know your ID number.
