All Access Pass Coming Soon!
Manatee Libraries and the School District of Manatee County are excited to announce the All Access Pass, an initiative that will help students and families access the vast resources at the public library.

The All Access Pass provides all enrolled K-12 students access to public library resources with their Student ID number. By removing the physical barrier of coming to the library to get a card we are expanding resources to students in their homes, classrooms, and wherever they need access.
