Student Cards

Since 2018, the Alachua County Library District and Alachua County Public Schools have pioneered the Student Library Card program to provide students with public library cards. More than 27,000 cards were distributed to local schools. Students at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School at the University of Florida were added to the program in 2019.


Student Cards allow cardholders to access the following library resources at no cost:
• Borrow 3 books or audiobooks
• Check out eBooks, download music and read digital magazines
• Use library Databases, including tutoring help and homework resources
• Log on to internet computers at any of the Library District’s 12 branches

How to use your card

In the fall, Alachua County Public Schools' students receive an welcome email to their student email accounts explaining what the Student Library Card program is and how to use it. P.K. Yonge students receive a welcome letter.

These messages included each student's Student Library Card number and an explanation of their pin/password. Students can use this information to log in to library resources online and to check out items at any branch or online. 

Remember: To log in to Alachua County Library District resources, you'll need to enter your entire Student Library Card number (all the numbers with no spaces) and your pin number/password (that’s the month and day that you were born. For example, someone born on September 14 would have the pin number/password 0914). If you changed your pin last year, the pin has been reset to your four-digit birth month and date.
