Wow and opt out form

WOW Digital Library Card

GCS Students now have access to the Gaston County Library digital resources. The WOW (WithOut Walls) card allows access to databases, audiobooks, and ebooks, even if the student does not have a library card. To use this service:

  • Go to

  • Select "Online Databases and Links".

  • Select "And more." This will take you to the database page. We use NCKids.

To check out materials, use this formula:

  • All cards start with "WOW."

  • Add enough zeroes before the lunch number to equal a total of 14 characters.

  • For example, a student whose lunch number is 1234567 will use this WoW card number: wow00001234567.


Parents who would like to opt out of this service must fill out and return a copy of this opt out form. You may also send your student to the media center to pick up a hard copy.
