NC Cardinal Student Access


Welcome to StudentAccess

Wilkes County Schools and the Wilkes County Public Library are partnering to support students’ ongoing education. We share the belief that a love of books and learning is a strong foundation for student success and we are working together to provide every Wilkes student access to books and resources found at their public library.

As of October 9, 2017, all Wilkes County students are able to use their Student ID number to access and borrow public library books and resources. We are calling this initiative StudentAccess.


StudentAccess FAQ

StudentAccess participants may borrow up to 10 books or audio-books from the Wilkes  County Library or Traphill Branch Library.  No late fees will be charged for these items, however replacement costs for lost or damaged item may be assessed. 

You can access your account at any time by logging in with your student identification number and PIN. 

Students log in with their Student ID Number (Lunch number) and use the last 4 digits of the number as the password.  

Special directions for accessing NC Live :   Students will need to select Wilkes County Public Library, then type out ARLS and the first 7 digits of your ID number.


StudentAccess participants are also able to access our collection of digital content such as downloadable e books or e audio-books. 

StudentAccess participants also have access to our collection of Online Resources.   This includes our collection of databases, study guides, and much more. 

We are excited to provide this new service to our local educators and public school students!  We are working to plan and provide training to parents, teachers, and students.  Please check back for new and additional resources.  If you have questions or would like to schedule a training session with a librarian, please contact Julia Turpin, Wilkes County Librarian, 336-838-2818.
