Accessing our NYPL Catalog

To browse our library catalog, as well as NYPL's catalog, go to or and begin to search.  To borrow materials and have them sent directly to our school, you must log in with your library card number.  Your pin number will be "2012," unless you changed it yourself.  Be sure to enter the email address you actually check when registering your card--that is how they will notify you when your materials ship and/or are overdue!

When selecting materials to borrow, click the green "Place a Hold" button and choose "DOE CAMPUS Martin Luther King, Jr. Educational Campus" as your pick-up location.  Materials will be delivered right here to the library.  I will notify you when they arrive!

When requesting materials, be sure to plan ahead--there are many schools participating in the program, all sharing those Teacher Sets!

What is This Card For?

  • Borrowing school-related materials (books, DVDs, audiobooks, ebooks, etc).  This card should not replace your personal card.
  • Borrowing Teacher Sets (class sets of individual titles or a curated classroom mini-library on pre-selected topics)
  • Enjoy extended loan periods of 60 days
  • Enjoy fine-free borrowing 
  • Access to NYPL's entire collection of research databases
  • Link your NYPL card to Queens Public and Brooklyn Public libraries

Help, I have Questions!?

If you need help accessing the NYPL site and/or requesting materials, you can contact the NYPL helpline at 917-ASK-NYPL.  

If you have questions or forgot your library cardcode number, you can email me at or call me at extension 2001.
