A Library card for every student.
A partnership between Sacramento Public Library and local school districts enables students to use their student ID as a public library card to access Sacramento Public Library’s collection and resources for free.
How to log in and use a Student Success Library Card
With the Student Success Library Card, students can:
Log into one of the resources above. Use the letter code for your school district and your Student ID number
wherever you are asked for a Library card number. For example, if your SJUSD student ID number is 123456, you would log in using SJ123456.
- “SJ” + your Student ID # for San Juan Unified School District
- "SC" + your Student ID # for Sacramento City Unified School District
- "TR" + your Student ID # for Twin Rivers Unified School District
- "G" + your Student ID # for Galt Joint Union High School District
Your 4 digit PIN will be set to the birth year on your school record. You may visit or call the library at 916-264-2920 to reset this PIN.
If you are interested in offering this at your school district, email the Library's K-12 Specialist
Opting out of the Student Success Library Card program
If your student does not have a Sacramento Public Library card, and you do not want access to a Student Success Library Card, you may complete an opt-out form.
Will I be charged fines or fees with a Student Success Library Card?
No. The Student Success Library Card as issued does not accumulate any fines or fees for the ebooks you borrow or other digital resources you access.
Can I upgrade my student card to a full Library card?
Yes. Visit any Sacramento Public Library location to have your Student Success library card upgraded to a library card account with full free access. A legal guardian will need to provide a photo ID and proof of address, and you will be asked for a phone number and/or email address to add to the account. Please review our borrowing policy to learn more about potential fees associated with a full library card.
What if I already have a library card?
You may continue to use that card, and/or your new Student Success library card account. Library staff can merge the two into one card at your request. Visit any Sacramento Public Library location to have the accounts combined.
Student Success Library Card accounts will be kept private in compliance with all laws and regulations regarding both student and public library data.
