Welcome New Cardholders!
Get the Most out of  Library Membership

Virtual Reality in the Library

Congratulations on becoming a card-holding member of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries (SCPL). Your library card gives you access to more than the great books, movies, and music you’ve come to expect.

We’ll always have printed books at the library for check out! And your library card also gives you access to our digital eLibrary of thousands of downloadable eBooks, audiobooks, and streaming movies. If you’re doing research, we have high quality, authoritative subscription resources and recommended websites for everything from homework help to investment research. You never even have to step into the library to use this stuff!

You can access your account online to renew, request, and keep lists of books you want to read or have read. Or you can download our mobile app, SCPL on the Go for additional tools like scanning the barcodes of books you find in the bookstore to request them from the library, mobile checkout, and an electronic version of your library card.

While you’re visiting the library you’ll find all types of programs and events to educate, delight, and entertain. Enjoy early literacy storytimes for kids, STEAM activities and education, Virtual Reality and tech education workshops, book groups, movie nights, science discussions and more. Visit the Library Online Calendar for a full list of events at all branches.

Get relevant news about library programs, services, and collections, right in your inbox when you  sign up for the library’s eNewsletter lists.  You can also get reading recommendations emailed to you every month. Teachers and educators can sign up for a monthly newsletter tailored just for your needs, too.

We’re here to help you achieve your goals. Feel free to come in to any branch, call Telephone Information at 831-427-7713 or email us at with your questions and feedback.
