Your key to academic success!
We are committed to supporting San Francisco students by offering a free digital library card. We teamed up with the San Francisco Unified School District and many Charter, private and parochial schools to provide each student with a full access public library card: the Scholar Card. Students receive a special email from the library with their account number. This means no paper applications or waiting. Every student at the school has equitable access to millions of free resources!
Essential school tools for students:
- Computer use & WIFI
- Online homework help
- Books, audiobooks, graphic novels, movies, music and more
- Research Resources K–12
- Research Resources for Teens
- Language Learning Tools
- Museum Passes
- Streaming movies and music
- Reading support for 1st – 4th graders
A parent or guardian who does not want their child to have access to library resources can complete this form to optout of the Scholar Card.
