New Digital Library Card

Dear Island Trees community: 

While everyone is at home with their loved ones, the Library is offering a special, temporary digital library card for any and all Island Trees residents who do not have a library card but could really use one right now. The Library has a terrific range of online resources ranging from eBooks via OverDrive to live tutoring via Tutor.com, and we encourage you to make the most of all of it while you are at home. Your library card can be used for a range of home-based activities–from supporting your child’s online distance learning to simply downloading an audiobook or a magazine to enjoy and relax with.

To apply for a digital library card, go to: https://www.nassaulibrary.org/digital-card-application/. Once your card is approved and then processed, you can access all of our digital offerings through June 30, 2020.

Best to you all,

Michelle Young, Director
