Learn about Library Go

This school year, the Saint Paul Public Library and Saint Paul Public Schools launch Library Go, a program to provide free public library e-cards for all students. Educators can apply for a special Library Go Educator E-card that allows access to the library's digital materials.

Connect with your Local Children's Specialist

Children's Specialists are library staff dedicated to youth. They can suggest titles, gather materials, arrange class visits, and visit schools. You can find them at all library locations.

Educator Status Library Card

An educator status card lets you check out most library materials without accruing overdue fines. Educator status library card registrations are good for one year and need to be re-registered each August. Though you do not accrue fines except on DVDs and videos, please respect the library due dates.
