The Library Center is a resource hub for teachers and students to access digital resources, tools, regalia and materials for effective instruction and learning.
Educators within a contracting school district have access to our Portal to checkout physical items or to utilize the digital resources such as California Streaming, Insignia Library, PebbleGo, PebbleGo Next, ScholasticGO, and Mystery Science.
Please visit our FAQ page on the Portal for more information on additional online resources available, including databases purchased by the state library.
