What's the difference between a temporary access code and a library card?

Temporary access codes let you begin using our web site resources immediately. Until you get your library card, you won't be able to borrow books or use your library's Internet computers. Temporary access codes let you:

  • Request up to 2 items through the online catalog. Library cards allow you to request up to 15 items.
  • Begin using the library system's searchable resources right away, such as genealogy, business, investment and homework support databases. These databases have online books, encyclopedias, reference sources and magazines.
  • Please note that downloadable content (eAudios and eBooks) are not available through temporary access codes.

Your temporary access code is good for only 30 days. By the end of the 30 days, you must visit your library to show identification, complete the registration process, and pick up your library card.
