Student Success Library Cards


 Through a partnership with the Santa Barbara Unified School District, students are able to obtain a Student Success Library Card at enrollment. The Library Card is not a physical card - it’s tied to their student ID number: 2177000+student ID number.  Anytime a password is needed, it will be your 4321. 

The Student Success Library Card gives access to: 

  • Check out of 3 books or other physical materials at a time from any Santa Barbara Public Library location
  • Online resources, such as Hoopla and Overdrive ebooks and eaudio, Mango Languages learning software, and more.
