CLASS Project

Resources for parents, guardians, and teachers

NHC School Staff Accounts

CLASS Project, uses Staff UID numbers instead of separate library cards. With their CLASS Project account, all NHCS staff can: 

  • Access NHCPL research databases 

  • Borrow digital materials such as e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines 

  • Borrow up to 2 print books, audiobooks, or magazines at a time (no DVDs or music CDs) 

  • There are no overdue fines or fees for CLASS Project accounts.

Staff are still encouraged to visit the library to obtain a traditional library card, and teachers can apply for an Educator card with extended borrowing privileges. 

About Educator Cards

  • These cards are separate from your personal NHCPL card.
  • The Educator card offers expanded availability of library materials for classroom use, with an extended checkout limit and checkout period (up to 50 items, checked out for 6 weeks). Items may be renewed once.
  • To apply for an Educator card at any NHCPL location, the teacher should bring a photo ID, proof of mailing address, and verification of current status as an educator in New Hanover County.
