All of the local libraries are currently closed. Whether you’re stuck inside for physical distancing or just need an escape after finishing work since you’re an essential employee, we can help provide a slice of library experience to you. In order to provide additional support to area residents during this challenging time, CEFLS and Northern New York Library Network each contributed $3,000 to bolster the collection of ebooks and e-audiobooks available! We hope that these additional titles help you enjoy your downtime while staying safe and helping flatten the curve. Visit cefls.org/downloads to check one out today!
If you have any trouble accessing the online collection, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can take steps to either renew the card temporarily for the duration of the stay-at-home period or create a temporary account with the required information (your full name, date of birth, and a picture of a piece of mail sent to your local address as proof of residence). Of course, you can visit your local library once they’ve reopened to renew your card in full or grant you a new card.
