Library Go

The Saint Paul Public Library and Saint Paul Public Schools present Library Go, a program to provide free, virtual public library cards for all students. Fill out a simple form and get your educator e-access card. You can only access digital materials with your e-access card.


Educator Status 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.


Care Providers

Daycares are welcome to participate, and should just fill out one children's activity log!  Each child still wins an individual prize!


Debra S. Fish Early Childhood Resource Library
