Turbo Charge Your Library Card

In a past posting, we introduced 52 ways for you to use your library card. Now that the new year has arrived, you may wish to try out some or all of these 52 activities throughout each week of the year. Don't have a library card yet? The San Francisco Public Library aims to provide equal access to information and has recently launched its virtual eCard. Any California resident can apply for an eCard online, and from there, explore the library's electronic resources which include perusing many periodicals from the Magazines & Newspapers Center online through subscription databases, reading and listening to eBooks and eAudiobooks, and much more.

If you would like to reserve and check out books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and other library materials, you will need to upgrade to a full-access library card. Just bring a photo ID and proof of your current residential address to any San Francisco Public Library location. For more information on registering online for an eCard, check our FAQ.
