Merced County Library Card Initiative


Hilmar High School, in partnership with the Merced County Library, is participating in a county wide literacy initiative to obtain library cards for all Merced county students. Students with parent signed application forms will be able to obtain a county library card through Hilmar High School. This eliminates parents having to visit a county library branch with multiple forms of identification to apply.

Applications will be handed out soon by your student’s English teacher. Applications will need to be signed by a parent or guardian and be returned to their teacher. With teachers asking for higher quality work with multiple references, this will be an important resource for your student as they progress towards graduation. Some of the benefits in having a Merced county library card are listed below.


Privileges & Services include:


Digital E-Books

Never worry about late fees or damages, students will be able to check out and read books through Merced County’s 3M cloud library.

This service offers three different interfaces: PC App, Web App and Mobile App and is compatible with the following devices:  PC, Android, iPad, iPhone, iTouch, Kobos and Nook.
