CLASS Project, or “Connecting Libraries and Schools for Success,” uses students' school identification numbers (lunch numbers) and school staff UID numbers instead of separate library cards. With their CLASS Project account, students and school staff can:
Access NHCPL research databases 24/7 anywhere you have an internet connection and your student/school ID number
Borrow digital materials such as e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines
Borrow up to 5 print books, or audiobooks, or magazines at a time (no DVDs or music CDs) - Login to renew books using your student/staff ID number and PIN (the last 4 digits of that number)
There are no overdue fines or fees for CLASS Project accounts.

Summer Reading Program
June 10 - August 19, 2023
Get a head start! Beginning June 1, you can create a READsquared account to track your reading, access virtual missions, and earn points to enter prize drawings. Starting June 10, pick up your Summer Reading packet at any of the four libraries! Limit one per person, while supplies last. Visit the NHCPL homepage for hours and locations details. Participants (and their caregivers) set individual reading goals and select which library programs to attend. Children can read independently or be read to. Caregivers reward readers with the prizes out of the packets from our sponsors. There are no required titles for summer reading, it's all about reading what you enjoy! Looking for recommendations? Check back in June.
