NVUSD Library Services provides access to many resources that can help you in the classroom as well as be of use to your students.

Resources are either provided by NVUSD*, freely available online, or available through the Napa County Library (NCL). Students have access to NCL resources through the NVUSD OneCard. Teachers who do not already have a NCL card may apply online here.  

*Most NVUSD resources are IP-authenticated. This means if you are accessing them from a school you will not need a password. See our Library Logins pagelibrarian tested teacher approved for instructions on how to access NVUSD resources away from campus.
