Library Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


How do I access digital books, audio books, graphic novels through the Sacramento Public Library?

Every student in SCUSD has a FREE digital library card issued by the district and the public library.  This card is virtual and can be used to access all the wonderful resources and free materials in our Sacramento Public Library.  

Two GREAT sources for free books are Libby and Hoopla.  Here is the information that explains how to log in and how to check out digital materials:

How can I access other free digital book sources such as Epic?

Email your student’s ELA teacher for log in information and other resources.  Also check their digital bookshelf called Clever in their SCUSD computer account.

How can I get a physical copy of a textbook?

Email Ms. Labson at to make arrangements or call the Fern Bacon front office.  All textbooks are available digitally in Clever.

How can I get a physical book to read (library book)?

Browse our Fern Bacon Library catalog and fine 1-3 books to reserve.

Fill out this Fern Bacon Library Book Request Form and wait for Ms. Labson to contact you.  I will be on the Fern Bacon campus every Friday during lunch (and some weeks more than one day).

Contact your student’s ELA teacher. Many teachers are giving out their own classroom books.
