An eCard can be used for two years. If you already have a St. Louis Public Library card, you do not need an eCard. Your current Library card number can be used to access online resources and place holds. Log into your account here.
Persons eligible for free borrowing privileges who have never had an SLPL card or those who want access to only digital content and online services may apply for an eCard. An eCard may not be used for reserving Library computers.
If you would like to check out physical materials, simply go to the nearest SLPL location with a photo ID and present your eCard number to a staff member to be issued a Library card with checkout privileges.
