New SDPL EXCEL Cards for Grades TK-12

  The Student EXCEL Card program is a collaborative effort between San Diego Public Library and San Diego Unified School District with the goal to get a library card in the hands of every student in the district by 2025.

At the start of the 2023-2024 all TK- 12th grade students enrolled in a non-charter San Diego Unified School District school will be registered for a Student EXCEL Library Card account.
