City of Boston Student ONE Card

Borrowing and Circulating Information


The Boston Student ONE Card is a single card that acts as a student's:

  • Boston Public School ID and attendance card
  • Boston Public Library card
  • Boston Centers For Youth & Families (BCYF) membership card
  • MBTA Pass

For the 2012-2013 school year, cards were issued to roughly 20,000 students in Boston Public Schools high schools and some middle schools, up from approximately 8, 000 students the previous year.

At the Boston Public Library, the ONE Card works exactly like a typical library card. Students with a ONE Card do not need to get a separate library card.
