Student ID Number = Public Library Card

HAAL Pass

HAAL Pass allows every student enrolled in a Hillsborough County Public School, Hillsborough County Charter School, or Hillsborough Virtual School, access to public library resources with their seven-digit student ID number and the default PIN.

In addition to the great resources students receive from their school media centers, HAAL Pass allows them to use their seven-digit student ID number as a public library card.

Instant Library Access for Students

  • Borrow up to 3 items from any public library branch with no overdue fines or lost book fees.

HAAL Pass Guidelines

  • All Hillsborough County Public Schools students are automatically enrolled.
  • Students use their student ID number and the default PIN. No physical library card is issued.
  • The HAAL Pass is not associated with any other library card or account.
  • Students may still have a standard public library card in addition to HAAL Pass.

Note for Parents

Parents may opt their child out of HAAL Pass with this opt-out form. Students who opt out will not have access to public library resources unless they have a standard Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative card and know the full card number and PIN.
