Access Online School Library

King County Library System Partnership

Through a partnership between the Bellevue School District and King County Library System (KCLS), all students K-12 enrolled in BSD schools have access to a KCLS e-card. This card allows students access to all KCLS digital materials, including databases, eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, newspapers, and homework help. Students can seamlessly log in from school, home or from any computer or device.

Logging into

Library Card Number = 405 + Student ID Number
PIN or Password = last 4 digits of student ID number

Student’s ID Number = 234567
Library Card Number = 405234567
PIN or Password = 4567


Easy for students to remember. The account number will utilize each student’s school ID number preceded by the School District number (405).

Give each student seamless access. Students will be able to use the array of databases, downloadable materials (through Overdrive) and online homework help services offered by KCLS without needing a physical card.

No fines or fees. Since students will only be able to access electronic materials it won’t be necessary for students to track due dates.

Students who already have a traditional KCLS library card will continue to be able to use it to checkout materials from the public library and use in-library computers. This new arrangement between the BSD and KCLS will supplement the traditional library card and improve each student’s ability to access KCLS online research tools as part of their school work.

Please check the School Accounts FAQ​ for further information as well as the additional resources on the right. If you have any other comments or questions about the Student eCard program, please feel free to contact Elsa Steele, Library Operations Coordinator at [email protected].
