Student Card

Students reading books from the library they borrowed with a Student Card

Want to experience success in school and more love for reading? Us too! That's why Jacksonville Public Library and Duval County Schools have partnered to create a student card for all DCPS students! It works like a regular library card, but with some features to ensure greater success.

#Easier for Parents, Easier for Kids!

  • Check out up to three print books or audiobooks at a time.
  • Access to library's electronic and digital collections; use of library computers.
  • Check out and return to any Jacksonville Public Library location.
  • No overdue fines, but please return on time.
  • No fees for lost or damaged items; but please handle responsibly.
  • No applications, no parent signatures, no physical cards to lose.

#Here's How the Student Card Works:

A student ID at school is also a virtual Student Card. That means a student number is also a library card number!

Use a Student Card to check out books at the library and use a PIN to access digital collections and more.

Already have a library card? Don't worry, you can have BOTH!

If you run into any issues, please call us at (904) 255-2665.

#Need a Ride to the Library?

All Jacksonville middle and high school students can ride the bus to the library for free! Just show your student ID.
