Learning Express Library

Free WiFi and Public Computers
Visit one of our 30 locations to use free Wi-Fi or take advantage of the Library’s public computers and printers. Visitors can also borrow a laptop at some branches to use while there.

Research Resources
The Library has a wealth of databases for students to find solid, cite-able sources for almost any subject. Try Explora for Elementary School, Primary Search, Explora for High School, Academic Search Complete or MasterFILE Premier, to name a few.

After School Activities
The Library hosts weekly teen-only (13-18) activities at all of 30 locations, and some also have activities just for 9- to 12-year-olds. Stop by after school and make new friends while you learn crafts, watch movies, and experiment with new technologies. Some locations also offer after-school snacks so you can fuel up before you start on your homework!

eBooks and eReading Rooms
Need to read a book for an assignment and can’t find it? Try looking for an eBook version! The Library also offers eReading rooms that provide a great virtual environment for children and teens to browse within the San Antonio Public Library digital library. Each room is customized to display content only for the particular browsing audience, cataloged by reading level.

The Teen Library at Central
At the Teen Library at Central, there is a lab that allows 3D printing, a computer lab, free Wi-Fi, gaming space and even a recording studio. And the teen book collection keeps growing, with titles that include teen fiction, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) materials, manga and graphic novels. The books are available for checkout throughout the Library system. The Teen Library at Central is located on the 3rd floor of Central Library at 600 Soledad St.

Ask a Librarian
Librarians are information ninjas. They can help you find those elusive books on obscure historical events or find the answer to complicated reference questions. Talk to them in person (we also have teens’ and children’s librarians) or call them at 210-207-2500 or 210-207-2678. You can also click the Ask icon at mysapl.org or text the Library at 210-591-7445.

Bexar County residents can sign up for a San Antonio Public Library card in person at any one of 30 library locations or digitally using a mobile phone number with the Libby app from OverDrive. Visit mysapl.org or call 210-207-2500 for more information about these free resources and more, and for a map of all 30 San Antonio Public Library locations.
