Fontana Regional Library is partnering with Jackson, Macon, and Swain County Schools to support students’ ongoing education. We share the belief that a love of books and learning is a strong foundation for student success and we are working together to provide every public school student access to books and resources found at their public library.
The Student Access project will allow public school students in Jackson, Macon, and Swain Counties to access Fontana Regional Library print and electronic resources using their school ID, without needing to visit their local library to set up an account. Student ID accounts allow students to borrow e-resources and access library databases. Students can also borrow up to 10 print or audio books from their local public library collection. 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. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the State Library of North Carolina.
