USING YOUR CARD
Your library card is good at all Saint Paul Public Library locations.
You can also register your card at most public libraries throughout Minnesota.
Most library card registrations need to be renewed every 2 years.
You can see your card expiration date in your online account settings. To renew your account registration, please contact the library in person, by phone, or online.
If you lose your library card, please contact any SPPL location as soon as possible. Library staff can stop your card until it can be found or replaced. You are responsible for all materials checked out on your library card until its loss is reported.
Use your library card to:
- View your account to view your current checked-out items, place holds, keep track of what you've read, and more.
- Check out e-books.
- Place interlibrary loan requests.
- Access online resources like newspapers archives, language-learning programs, skill-building tutorials, and more.
Logging into your account and using some online services requires a password (or PIN). If you do not know your password/PIN or cannot reset it online, please contact the library or email us and staff can help you set a new one.
