Sheppard Memorial Library: Student Resources

Student Resources


NCpedia is an online encyclopedia about North Carolina



With NCknows, you can connect to a librarian through your computer at any time. By typing messages back and forth, we will be able to give you answers, articles and more. It's easy and safe. We are open 24/7 except for Sat/Sun midnight-8am.


Great non-fiction picture e-books are now available for beginning readers. There is also an audio narration feature that can speak different languages and these books are read by native speakers. A huge thanks to Unite for Literacy​ for making this free service accessible for patrons!




Now there’s an easy way to check on new books arriving for all ages. 
As soon as a new title arrives, you’ll be the first to know via email.
