LPSS Student IDs serve as a Lafayette Public Library Card!

The Lafayette Public Library and the Lafayette Parish School System have teamed up for a second year to provide your child with a free Student ID-Public Library Card. This program automatically enrolls more than 31,000 Lafayette Parish public school students into the library system.

All Lafayette Parish School System students can check out books, movies, music, magazines, and games at any library in Lafayette Parish. Best of all, there are no overdue fines. Items will renew automatically if not returned by the due date.


To use a Student ID online as a library card, apply the following formula:
239555 + 00* + Student ID number.
(*add zeros here in the middle to make a 14-digit sequence)


For example, if the student’s ID number is 857449,
then the library card number would be: 23955500857449.

To sign in online, you’ll use the following PIN: 1234.
