Library Offers a Range of Virtual Resources to Cardholders

digitalresourcesPlans for the new library are full steam ahead with the announcement that the campaign has met – and exceeded – their goals. That means that the Scarsdale Library will soon move to the “Library Loft,” their temporary quarters at Supply Field. And while there won’t be as much physical space for the public, the library has beefed up the range of digital resources library cardholders can access virtually.

Here’s an impressive list of online resources for virtual access to books, audio books, movies, magazines, graphic novels and comic books, music and lots more. Even more content is to come – on May 1, patrons will also be able to access Acorn Television! Stay tuned.

Some of this content is free and for others, all you need is your library card number and password, which in most cases is the last four digits of your home phone.

Here is the link to the page on the Scarsdale Library website with all the resources:
