About eLibrary Access for Schools

eAccess for Schools card


The Library’s eAccess cards give students and teachers free access to top-quality online resources to use in the classroom, during virtual learning and homework, or for entertainment. eAccess cards can help establish an environment that makes concepts easier to understand while making lessons more entertaining.

Simply enter your card number to access resources when needed. The default password is “1234”––unique passwords may be created at My Account. On occasions where a resource requires you to create an account using an email address, please note that you may choose to use any email address you desire, as long as it is not associated with a current physical library card.

eAccess Cards are good for one calendar year. New cards are distributed each August. Cards provide electronic resource access only, not the ability to check out physical items, so there are no returns to worry about. Get a regular library card.
