Public school students across New York City have a new “NYC Public Libraries” Card in school. This card must be activated at a branch of Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library or Queens Library before it can be used to borrow books and other materials.
Students may already have a library card when they receive the new library “NYC Public Libraries” Card. Those cards will continue to work as usual, however, in some cases activating the new NYC public libraries card may provide extra benefits. Policies vary by library system so check with your local library for details.
