Student Resources

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Access information to help with your studies using these online resources. There’s something for all ages and grades, including preschool through adult.


Your Student ID now acts as a Library Card!


The Hicksville Public Library is working in partnership with Hicksville Public School District to provide access to all the resources available at the Library using your student ID. No physical card is needed for you to begin accessing resources and materials now.

If your Student ID has 5 digits, your library card number is 21911000 plus your Student ID number . If your Student ID has 6 digits, just use 2191100 (one less zero) plus your Student ID number.


Use this to access e-books and e-audiobooks from Sora and to access digital resources from our website (some of which are listed below).

Your pin number is the last four digits of your student ID or barcode. 

You can also find your digital Library Card information in your Power School account!
