Student Success Cards

Welcome to Siouxland Libraries!

A Siouxland Libraries Student Success Card is a great option for students who want to get started borrowing library materials immediately.

Your library card is a passport to a world of knowledge, fun, and exploration!

With this one simple card, you have access to hundreds of thousands of physical and digital items--picture books, children's fiction and nonfiction, graphic novels, middle readers, and magazines. Students in middle and high school can check out teen titles. Your card also provides access to free learning resources for all ages.

Your card can be used at any of our 13 branches, as well as our Bookmobile.

1. Getting a Card


  • Stop by any Siouxland Libraries location and ask staff for a Student Success Card.
  • You'll provide your name, birthdate, grade, school, and phone number, email, or address.

Pilot School

  • We are piloting this program at three schools in Sioux Falls. You will receive a card from your school if you attend John F. Kennedy, Hawthorne, or Terry Redlin Elementary.
  • The card needs to be brought in to a library to be activated. 

Who may get a Student Success library card?

  • Any student attending school in Sioux Falls or Minnehaha County (excluding the city of Dell Rapids) who does not already have a library account can get a Success Card.
