Free Library Access. Keep Young Brains Busy!

Loads of Books, Music, Movies and More Available to Campbell Union School District Students

The Santa Clara County Library District provides free library accounts to all students enrolled Campbell Union School District schools, regardless of their address. Many of our students already have their login information through their school’s library.

Log in or Drop in
There are over 100,000 eBooks available to read, 22,000 Audiobooks, countless songs to listen to and thousands of streaming videos to watch. Since all content is online, there are no fines, late fees, due dates to remember or trips to the library involved. The accounts also can be merged with existing library cards, if a child already has one. The library also serves as a community-gathering place for activities.

  • Visit the library’s calendar for information on summer activities.
  • For information about student’s digital accounts, contact the Campbell Public Library’s Nicole King, at nking [at] sccl.org or (408) 866-1991 x3224 .

Community Celebrates 40th Annual Writing Faire

300 guests came to celebrate literacy expression in its many forms

The Campbell Library was a-buzz as 300 people—students, families, teachers and principals—came out for Campbell Union School District’s 40th annual Writing Faire. The event features displays of student writing and celebrates literacy expression in its many forms.

Families clustered around the library stacks to read the stories, poems and reports as their students excitedly explained their work to them. 

Adding to the excitement was a drawing for prizes donated by Assistance League Los Gatos-Saratoga, Office Depot, and others, cookies from the Friends of the Campbell Library, and a green-screen photo booth to commemorate the anniversary.
