Universal Public Library Access Card

Big picture

The ICCSD Librarians have been working with the three local public libraries over the past year to develop an amazing new opportunity for our students - starting Monday, students' school ID cards are automatically ALSO public library cards!


That means all of our students have access to physical and digital materials at Iowa City Public Library, North Library Community Library, and Coralville Public Library without having to go through the setup process. Students can use this card to check out up to 3 items from each public library at a time - with no fines or fees! This is in addition to any materials they may check out with their "traditional" library cards if they have one.


Students will be issued a new student ID card, possibly before winter break. Until then, they may use their current ID at the public libraries (although the physical card is not required to check out). Students may login to Overdrive to access audiobooks and ebooks by choosing "ICCSD Student" instead of selecting an individual library. No pin number required.
