What Can You Do with Your Card?

Read: You can use your card to check out materials from our collection, including books, videos and music. Search through our online catalog for more ideas!

Research: On top of the ability to check out materials from our extensive non fiction collection, your card gets you access to our large collection of premium databases.

Download: Using your card on any computer, even from the comfort of your own home, gets you access to our digital collection. This includes eBooks, eAudiobooks and eVideos as well as digital magazines and local music from our Local Music Project.

Connect: A library card gets you access to our on-site public computer stations for Internet usage and some common software.

Ride: A library card is your ticket to ride an Iowa City Transit bus.

And much more
