eLibrary Access Guide

eLibrary

Getting Started

New to the website? You're probably wondering what you need to access eLibrary digital resources, like ebooks, audiobooks, movies, music, and more!

First, you’ll need a library card account number, that account's PIN/password, and the email address associated with it.

If you don't already have a library card, you can sign up for one here. Be sure to include your email address when doing so. A staff member will be in touch with you within 24–48 business hours to complete your account registration.

Passwords

If you already have an account, but don't know your PIN/password, here's what you can do. First, please note that the PIN and password are the same thing, used interchangeably. If you remember the PIN/password you created when you set up your account, that is what you will use. The Library often recommends choosing the last four digits of your phone number.

If you don’t remember your PIN/password, you can reset it by using the "Forgot your password?" link during account login, if you have an email associated with your library account.

eLibrary Options

The eLibrary can be accessed in the Library website menu, under "eLibrary". The eLibrary menu is organized by category. It includes eBooks, music, audiobooks, movies & TV, magazines & newspapers, learning opportunities, DIY, curated research materials, local & family history, and much more. The "eAccess for Schools" category will lead you to popular resources for classroom, homework, or independent study.

The Library subscribes to different resources and platforms on your behalf. For most, you'll simply log in or register with your library card barcode and PIN/password. If you're having trouble figuring out how to access the resource you want, many resources have a link for “More Information”. This link will take you to a page with instructions for using that resource as well as links to frequently asked questions. You may also want to check out these troubleshooting tips.
