San Rafael Public Library

Institutional Library Cards

We offer Institutional Library Cards for staff of schools, non-profits, and community service organizations. To get an Institutional Card, please bring a completed Institutional & Teacher Card Form along with a photo ID to the downtown San Rafael Public Library or the Pickleweed Library. These cards are intended for use of library materials in an educational or other professional setting, allowing teachers and other service providers to keep their professional and personal library use separate. Materials checked out with an institutional card are the responsibility of the institution they are associated with; any fines or fees are the responsibility of the institution, not the individual.

If you have any questions, or want to learn about other ways the San Rafael Public Libraries are partnering with and providing services to schools and other institutions, please contact us at library@cityofsanrafael.org.
