Do you need library cards for your students? 


Library Database Cards
If you work in a PVUSD secondary school, your school has been issued library cards that will allow remote access to use our research databases for your entire class simultaneously. This card is only good for accessing our databases, it does not have any other functionality.

For more information about database access for your classroom, please contact Young Adult Services Librarian, Hannah Clement at hannah.clement AT cityofwatsonville.org or speak with your school Library Media Technician.
