Use your superhero powers – get your library card

The San Diego Public Library and Library Foundation encourage every San Diegan to sign up for their own library card. Apply online for a Digital Library Card and open access to amazing educational digital resources such as ebooks, audiobooks, digital magazines, electronic databases, online classes, and more. You can convert your digital card to a physical card when checking out physical items via Contactless Pickup Service. Already have a card? Tell a friend how easy it is to apply.
