Learning Ally help for students

Your login is the part of your student email BEFORE  the @ sign. 

For example, if your student email login is ehernandezgarcia55@sccs-stu.net, your Learning Ally login is ehernandezgarcia55.

Contact your teacher or library staff for the password.

Here are instructions in English or Spanish to download the Learning Ally Audiobook app on personal/home devices and the tech guide for technical guidance. 

This video shows how to add a book to your Learning Ally Audiobook App and how to use the features of the application and set preferences:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLtJ-kfx87U  

Remember, once a title is downloaded to a device, internet access is not needed.

Please email hhslibadmin@sccs-stu.net if you need additional assistance.

Santa Cruz Public Library cards
Get a Card Online to Access the Virtual Library


Get a Card Online to Access the Virtual Library


Begin on the library homepage
Navigate to the right hand corner of the screen where you see an orange button labeled My Account. Click on that button. 

You will be taken to the library sign-in page. Look above the sign-in information where you will see a link to register for a library card. Click on the link. 

NOTE: Select “OK” on the pop-up menu that appears to confirm you are 13 or older. 

Select your home library. (This is the library closest to your current address!) Enter your postal code. Select your city on the next page.

NOTE: You will be required to select Y/N from a drop-down menu titled Allow Special Noticing by FSCPL. This is a nonprofit organization called Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries and they support/advocate for the libraries here. If you agree, they will be able to contact you about news, etc. You can find out more information HERE.

The pacreg code you are given can be used to access the library’s digital materials, such as eBooks and audiobooks.

You will be taken to the registration page. Input the information and Submit. 


The libraries have temporarily suspended the practice of emailing them to receive a permanent library card number. You can use the digital materials with your pacreg code. 


However, you will need to contact them once the threat of the virus lessens and the libraries open to receive your permanent card number to continue using the e-resources.
