Q. How do I get or replace a library card?


If you are a new borrower, please fill out the application online at the library or from home.  You will then need to come in to King Library or any San José Public Library branch to pick up your library card in person.  Please bring a valid, current government-issued photo ID such as a California driver’s license or a California ID card. 

To get a replacement library card,  bring a valid photo ID with proof of current address and speak with a staff member at the Circulation Desk. 

If you are a registered SJSU student, SJSU student information is automatically entered into the library database from the Registrar's Office. As a registered SJSU student, you have remote access to SJSU databases and e-books by using your SJSU ID and a self-created library PIN.  You can check your PIN by clicking the Library Account link on the SJSU library home page.

In order to borrow books, have remote access to SJPL databases, and check out San José Public Library e-books, SJSU students need to get a San José Public Library Card.
