UT students and faculty are welcome and encouraged to join the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative (HCPLC), the nearest branch of which is the John F. Germany Library across the river (the central branch).
To use services and check out items at the public library UT students, faculty, and staff first need to sign up for a free library card. You can get a card online or in person by using your current UT Spartans ID and a piece of mail addressed to your current Tampa address (see more here about How to Get a Library Card).
HCPLC offers a large selection of streaming videos and ebooks, many of which are not available at the Macdonald-Kelce Library. If you are looking for a feature film or popular novel, join the Hillsborough Public Library!
