Resources for teachers and parents:
If you are a student currently attending a Cobb County Public School, you already have a Library PASS (Public Library Access for Student Success) account. That means you have access to all of their awesome resources at the public library, including 93 online databases, 18,659 eBooks, 7,270 eAudiobooks, and 430 streaming videos as well as 604,908 physical items in our collection.
Use your student number (it’s the same as your lunch number) and your PIN to check out library materials and access digital resources. Your PIN is your 4 digit birthday using the month and day you were born. For example, if you were born on February 4, your PIN would be 0204.
Get your homework done faster and easier with your Library PASS. You can access their elementary school databases 24/7! Find great books to read, download, or stream! Or visit any of the Cobb County libraries to use the internet, print, or check out a book to read. We even have a growing collection of apps to download to your mobile device.
What are you waiting for? There is an entire library for you to explore. And you already have a PASS!
Many free resources are available through Kincaid Elementary, the Cobb County School District and the Cobb County Public Library. Most notably are Office365 for Students, the Cobb Digital Library at Mackinvia and P.A.S.S., free student accounts at the Cobb County Public Library.

As of Saturday, July 28, the Kincaid Summer Reading Challenge has ended! We will be rewarding students that participated via the reading log or online at Biblionasium. All paper logs are due turned into the purple box in the Learning Commons by Friday, August 10. Late logs will not be accepted as we will only be ordering the exact amount of supplies we need for the rewards. We posted a list of students that participated in the Biblionasium challenge on the library bulletin board. They will automatically be included in the reward list and don’t have to do anything else. We will be giving out rewards before the end of the month. Great job everyone!
As of Tuesday morning, we have no volunteers for Mornings with Moms on Friday. We need 5 helpers! We would love to have some Dads help, seeing as this is a momma event.

Please help us support our school PTA and the American Cancer Society. Also, don’t forget to RSVP for the event, Moms, if you plan on eating with your child. Please share with all of your Kincaid friends!
