Please note:

Effective Monday, March 16, all Eastern Counties Regional Library locations will be closed for three weeks as a precaution to help limit the spread of COVID-19. As part of this closure, Borrow By Mail service is also suspended. 

During this closure, borrowers can still register for a library card, but the card itself will not be mailed until we reopen. Staff will provide you with a library card number and PIN to allow access to the library's digital resources (including downloadable eBooks, Audiobooks, databases, etc).


An Eastern Counties Regional Library card account is required to borrow from the library’s collections and access many of the library’s digital resources (including eBooks, databases, etc.) A library card number is also required to manage your account, place requests, and renew items online or over the phone. Any person who wishes to access ECRL services may register for an ECRL card at no charge.

Identification is required in order to register for a library card. Acceptable pieces of identification include: Driver’s license, Health card, or other piece of identification that includes the individual’s name and address. Identification must be current (i.e. not expired). Adults are fully responsible for the use of their library card. Children and youth (18 and under) must have a parent’s, guardian’s, or caregiver’s permission to register for a Juvenile library card. By granting their permission, that adult is agreeing to take full responsibility for use of the Juvenile card. 

Please read ECRL's Circulation Policy and Library Use Policy (found here) before registering for a library card.
