Student One Card for Student Success!
Student Success Initiative
In 2016-17, with a grant from the California State Library, the Pacific Library Partnership (PLP) and NorthNet Library System (NLS) joined forces to support The Student Success Initiative. The Initiative created a pilot program of partnerships between school districts and 15 local public libraries to enable students access to public library resources using their school-issued student identification cards. In 2017-18, the Student Success Initiative expanded with a statewide grant with 51 participating libraries. In 2018-19, it has further expanded to over 60 libraries. The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and the Livermore Public Library are proud to be part of this expansion!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
What student information will Livermore Valley Unified Joint School District (LVJUSD) share with the Livermore Public Library (LPL)?
- LVJUSD will share the student's name, school, grade, Student ID number, home address and phone number, student’s date of birth, and parent and/or guardian’s name.

Can the Student One Card be used at all Livermore library branches?
- The Student One Card can be used at the Civic Center, Rincon and Springtown library locations.
What if my child already has a Livermore Public Library card?
- If your child already has a card with the Livermore Public Library, his/her student ID number will be added to the existing library account. This will enable your child to use Livermore Public Library resources from home and school via the internet. Your child can continue to use his/her LPL card to check out materials and for online access, or may use his/her student ID card.
Can a Student One Card accrue fines or fees?
- A Student One Card functions exactly as a library card and can, therefore, accrue fines on physical materials that are returned late ($.25/day up to $5.00 per item in most cases). If an item is lost or damaged, the replacement cost can range from $5-50, though further options can be discussed with a Livermore Public Library staff member.
What if I don’t want my child to participate in the Student One Card Program?
- The Opt-out form for the pilot roll-out are available on this webpage. Opt-out forms should be turned into your student's FIT teacher or school librarian. Moving forward, the ability to opt-out will be available during annual online registration (Infosnap).
