Library Media Centers

All VCUSD libraries are a safe and welcoming space, where we celebrate and encourage diversity in our community and support our schools' missions. Our libraries maintain current materials for both curricular and personal use. We promote collaboration with faculty, students and parent, to help students learn those skills needed for both lifelong learning and lifelong reading. We strive to make our libraries a space to promote responsible habits for research and reading. We pledge our libraries as safe spaces for all students.

Computers in the Library

VCUSD has a large selection of eBooks and shared resources such as news and magazine articles. Here is one way our students can access this resource anywhere there is internet access.

 From any internet search engine


Use the dropdown bar to choose your State, District and School

Students' user names are the  School ID number (8 numbers that start with 200)

Students' password is the last 5 digits of that number

When your child is logged on, their home page will open up. From there, a search will open a wealth of resources including VCUSD's collection of eBooks, that students can view from Go Follett. Try the word 'bugs" or "cats' any subject that interests your child!
