How do I apply for a Student Library Card?
We are currently piloting the Student Library Card program at Balboa, Edison and Jefferson Elementary Schools and Roosevelt Middle School. We plan to roll out the program at Cerritos, Keppel, Mann, Marshall, and Muir Elementary Schools by spring 2020 and at the remaining Glendale Unified schools by the 2021/2022 school year. Each participating school will notify parents once we launch the program at that school.
To apply for a regular library card, please click here or visit any Glendale Library, Arts, & Culture location.

To replace your Student Library Card, please click here to complete the Student Library Card replacement form. You will be notified once the replacement card is ready. Allow up to two (2) weeks for a replacement card to be delivered to your school.
What happens if I lose/damage a library book?
You will not be charged a lost book fee on any materials checked out with the Student Library Card. However, your borrowing privileges will be blocked in an incremental fashion if items are lost or damaged. For example, if you check out three (3) items, and later:
One (1) item is lost or damaged, then you will only be allowed to borrow up to two (2) items total at a given time until the lost or damaged item is returned or replaced*.
Two (2) items are lost or damaged, then you will only be allowed to borrow up to one (1) item total at a given time until the lost or damaged items are returned or replaced*.
All three (3) items are lost or damaged, then you will no longer be allowed to use the Student Library Card to borrow physical items until the lost or damaged items are returned or replaced*.
Are there any fees for books checked out on a Student Library Card that are returned late?
No, there are no fines or fees for late or lost books. For details on lost/damaged material see the previous question.
What if I already have a regular library card?
You may continue to use your regular library card in addition to using your new Student Library Card.
If I owe money on my regular library card, may I still register and/or use my Student Library Card?
Yes, your Student Library Card is a separate account from your regular library card.
What is my PIN number? How can I change it?
Please ask your teacher for your initial temporary PIN. If you have already changed your temporary PIN and have forgotten it, visit any Glendale Library, Arts & Culture location for assistance with resetting it.
