It's easier to use educator accounts

Superintendent to bus drivers. If you are employed at Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, Orange County Schools or The Expedition Charter School in Hillsborough, you will have a digital library account in place with the Orange County Public Library this school year. You may also borrow books and other materials without the hassle of fines. Moreover, we've made it so you use just one card for your personal and educator accounts. Consider it a thank you for being part of educating our youth! Read more

All K-12 students have SEA accounts

Our Student Easy Access (SEA) accounts give all* k-12 students in Orange County Schools, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and The Expedition Charter School in Hillsborough unlimited access to library materials and digital resources. And there are no fines for late materials! Read more.

*This is a change from last year when students in Orange County Schools opted-in to the program. Now everyone has an account just by virtue of being an enrolled student at your school. 

Don't have, but would like, SEA or educator accounts at your charter or private school? Let's talk.
