HAAL Pass: Hillsborough All Access Libraries

Student ID Number = Homework Help

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.

Note for Parents

Parents may opt out of HAAL Pass for their child by completing and returning this form to their local Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library branch. HAAL Pass is equivalent to a Child Card or Teen Card level of access to library materials, depending on age, and cannot be changed.

Please visit your local public library branch if you would like to apply for a standard Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative Card for your child.
