Library Cards for Students

Please note: A JCPL library card grants students access to everything on our website, including content intended for adults. We encourage educators to supervise student access to online library materials. 

We're happy to connect educators and students to a library card to start exploring our online or in-person resources. In addition to standard library cards, JCPL offers several options for educators, including computer-use only cards, institutional cards or temporary online library cards. To learn more about these options, contact us using the Student Support Request Form. For immediate, at-home use, get started with a temporary online library card application (linked below).

Outreach Services Menu

We offer a variety of programs and activities for school and classroom visits. Browse the options and indicate what interests you on our Student Support Request Form. All programs can be customized to meet specific needs.
