Students Can Now Access Sacramento Public Library With Their Student ID Cards

e-Connections Post

Sacramento City Unified School District in collaboration with the Sacramento Public Library is excited to launch an effort to provide seamless and equitable access to library resources for all Sac City Unified students. The initiative will allow students to access library services simply by providing their Student ID, to make it easier for them to borrow e-books, get help with homework, and much more. The program aims to help students build a path of lifelong learning and future success in their college studies and careers.  

The Student Success Initiative will allow students to use their student ID numbers, with no physical card or additional bar code required. The project will expand student access to library resources by removing the barriers associated with requiring parent signatures, and without worry about potential fines. Card information will be confidential in compliance with all laws and regulations regarding both student and public library data.

The collaboration between the Sacramento Public Library and the school district advances Sac City Unified’s work to support our learners and educators by advancing the Superintendent’s goals of Reading by 3rd Grade, redesignating English Language Learners, and ensuring that students are ready to transition into their next tier of learning.

Teachers are also eligible for a special Library card and can apply here.
