Nevada City, Calif. October 25, 2017 – Students at Bear River and Nevada Union High Schools are ready to check the library out. A partnership between the Nevada Joint Union High School District and the Nevada County Community Library has resulted in a new class of cards for students without fines or fees: Student Success cards.

Students at Bear River High School and Nevada Union High School now have Student Success cards valid at all branches of the Nevada County Community Library. All they need is their student identification card; their new library card numbers are their school initials (for example, BRHS) and their student identification numbers. They are able to check out up to three items at a time, and have access to Library databases, ebooks, and other online resources. Students can keep their regular library cards in addition to their Student Success cards.

“We are very excited about the high level of access our partnership with the Community Library will allow our students. It is a natural collaboration and the library staff, at both our schools and the public library, should be commended for their progressive approach to making valid information available to the young people in our community,” Dan Frisella, Assistant Superintendent for the Nevada Joint Union High School District, said.
“We’re really excited to reduce barriers to students accessing our books and other resources to support learning and a love for reading,” Lisa Nowlain, Youth Librarian said. “With the Student Success cards, we’re looking forward to seeing new faces in the library, and the Nevada Joint Union High School District staff have been great partners.”
