Library eCard Registration

A Library eCard is free and allows access to most electronic resources on our website from your home, including magazine and newspaper databases, encyclopedias, our Special Collections, and downloadable audio! For eligibility requirements, click here.

  • Library eCard users who wish to check out or place holds on library materials will be asked to apply for a standard full-service Jacksonville Public Library Card.

If you already have a Jacksonville Public Library Card, you do not need a Library eCard. The electronic databases may be accessed with your existing Library Card number.

To receive your Library eCard number, complete and submit the following form and a confirming email with your Library eCard account number will be delivered to the email address you supply (within 24-48 hours with exceptions for library closings).

The Library eCard number will expire in three years. After this time, you may reapply for the eCard.
