Your Library at Home
Our branches are open, and our physical is now available for in-person visits or curbside service.
If you registered for a library card between March 16 and July 9, 2020, you received a Virtual Library Card.
This type of card provides you with access to our digital collection but not to our physical collection.
Please visit one of our branches with your ID so we can give you a free full service library card which will also let you borrow from our large physical collection.
If you prefer to continue using the library online, we still have plenty of digital services and content available for you.
Explore our digital services to read, watch, listen and learn – from the comfort of home!
