The Sacramento Library

Sacramento Public Library e-resources now available to district students. Thanks to a new partnership with the Sacramento Public Library, every student in San Juan Unified now has access to all of online resources provided by the Sacramento Public Library. Students can easily log in to the Sacramento Public Library website at http://www.saclibrary.org and check out e-books, music, or films and also access other online resources, such as the Gale research databases, homework help and online language classes. In order to access all of these resources and more, students will need to click on "my account" and enter their username and password on the Sacramento Public Library website. For this service, their username is sj------, with their student id number replacing the dashes. Their password is their year of birth in four digits, as listed in their district records. Here is a sample: Username: sj123456 Password: 1943 Please note that this is not the same as your Sj password!

There is a SacLibrary tile in the Portal in the Library Resources folder in your Student Tab. Once logged in, you can download books to Hoopla or Overdrive, or read online from BookFlix or Tumblebooks, which has popular books from preschool to high school.
