Your library card number is located on the back of your student ID. If you do not have a student ID, you can request a library card number be emailed to you. Simply fill out the form located at the bottom of this page. Remember that you can also sign in with your myLoneStar credentials. This number will grant you access to digital resources. Once the libraries reopen, you will need to apply in person for a physical ID card if you wish to check out non-digital library materials.
