What do I get when I purchase a non-resident card?
A non-resident card entitles you to the same privileges as a resident library cardholder.
  • You can check out library materials (books, videos, magazines, audiobooks).
  • You have access to the Library's 37,000-item collection and 100+ magazine and newspaper subscriptions.
  • You can use the Library's electronic resources, including the internet, Microsoft Office software, and online magazine databases.
  • Children can attend library storytimes, events, and participate in the summer reading program.
