Welcome to the Catharine Blaine K-8 Library!

The Catharine Blaine K-8 Library is a safe space for the whole community. Students are encouraged to be independent thinkers, inquisitive learners, and responsible community members here in our little library. They have access to diverse, relevant, and high quality books and resources. Our library strives to be a space where students can pursue their interests, whether that is through books, technology, or spending time with peers.

You can use this Library Link SPL Card to access Libby (ebooks & audiobooks), Hoopla (graphic novels, music, movies/TV), Kanopy (movies & documentaries), research databases, language-learning courses, and more.

If the system asks for an email address (Hoopla & Kanopy do), use your SPS email (username@seattleschools.org).

Your  Library Link  Barcode/Username  is  990000 + your 7-digit student ID #  (look it up on the Source and use STUDENT #, not STATE #)

Your  Library Link  PIN  is the  mmdd  of your birth date. Do NOT include the year. (Ex. April 6 = 0406 / December 18 = 1218) 

[If you signed up for your own library card through the public library, you can use that info also, for two accounts!]
