Library Go is Saint Paul’s unique initiative to achieve the goals set forth by President
Obama’s ConnectED Library Challenge, announced in April 2015. The ConnectED Challenge called upon library leaders of all levels and district administrative officials to work together so that every child enrolled in a school could receive a library card.

Library Go utilizes e-cards, eliminating the need to memorize numbers a well as the potential privacy issues that come with physical cards. The program provides free online tools for students, including homework help and access to dozens of databases.
