Get A Library Card

Your local library may be closed, but you can still access lots of great eResources from home with a library card.

Our eResources

Our eResources can be accessed from home, 24/7, with your library card barcode and PIN. 

A complete list of eResources can be found here. These include:

eBooks and eAudiobooks

eMagazines

eNewspapers

We are also grateful to our eResource vendors for generously opening up access at this time of crisis. Some of these include:

  • Access to Ancestry Library Edition has been temporarily expanded to library cardholders working remotely, courtesy of ProQuest and its partner Ancestry
  • PressReader has agreed to extend remote access to 60 days for users
  • TumbleBooks has offered us four free resources for the duration of library closures:  RomanceBookCloudAudioBookCloudTeenBookCloud, and TumbleMath 
  • NewspaperARCHIVE which offers historic news archives is temporarily available for PLS patrons
  • Audible Stories, which is normally a paid platform, is offering over 300 free audiobooks in six languages for kids for the foreseeable future
  • EBSCO is offering information and free resources for schools and public libraries impacted by COVID-19
  • The Internet Archive, which offers online access to older books that don’t have an ebook, has created a National Emergency Library with no waitlists for digital books

Don’t have a library card yet? No problem! Just fill out one of the forms below to apply for your card, and once your membership application has been processed, you will receive an email with a temporary barcode and pin which will allow you access to our eResources while libraries are closed. This is a free temporary eResources card.

When your local library reopens, please visit in person to pick up a plastic TRAC card and get access to the full range of services offered and to borrow physical items.
