With the library being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we know that many residents may want to use library resources from home, but can’t because they may not have a library card. If you don’t already have a library card, now you can get one easily thanks to our new virtual card service!

Virtual cards will allow temporary access to some of our most popular online eResources, including OverDrive, Freegal, RBdigital magazines and eAudiobooks, and databases.

When the library reopens stop by the circulation desk of any Warren Public Library location and fill out an application for a permanent library card that will allow access to other eResources like Hoopla as well as physical library items.

Sign up here for a virtual library card! For more information, visit our “Apply For A Library Card” page.
