It’s National Library Week! Normally, we celebrate by inviting you into our libraries to discover all the great events, materials, and services we offer, but this year we’re highlighting ways to find the library at YOUR place. Our buildings might be closed, but libraries are continuing to serve our communities with digital resources, virtual programs, and more. In the spirit of social distancing, we’ve come up with a list of ways you can use the library without leaving your home. Enjoy, and we’ll see you again soon!
Register for a library card online.
No library card? No problem! If you’re a Pennsylvania resident 13 years of age or older, you can sign up online for a card that gives you access to over 13,000 eBooks, eAudio, and streaming video. Click here to register.
