Your Library Card: The Most Valuable Card in Your Wallet

This September, the St. Johns County Public Library System joins with the American Library Association and Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, to promote the value of the public library card during their annual Library Card Sign-Up campaign.

 In addition to bestsellers, DVDs, audiobooks, CDs and more, St. Johns County residents who sign up for a SJCPLS library card receive 24/7 access to SJCPLS’s eLibrary for downloading eBooks, reading The New York Times digital edition, streaming movies and music, and researching for work or school projects.

 A library card is also an essential school supply for students. Whether it’s providing free access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) and robotics classes, virtual homework help through Brainfuse, or virtual databases for research and study, students will reap the rewards in academic achievement and lifelong learning.

 “The library card is a small but mighty tool in your wallet,” said Debra Rhodes Gibson, St. Johns County Library Director. “At a permanent cost of zero dollars, the library card unlocks a world of information, reading and viewing material, and there is something for everyone, regardless of the stage of life.”

 Thanks to an ongoing partnership with the Jacksonville Symphony and in celebration of Library Card Sign-Up Month, the St. Johns County Public Library System is again pleased to announce discounts for select 2022-2023 Jacksonville Symphony concerts for SJCPLS cardholders. Stop by or call your local SJCPLS branch library for the discount code and a list of the eligible concerts.

 For more information about signing up for a library card or the library’s resources and programs, please visit, email, or stop by any SJCPLS branch or bookmobile.
