Virtual Library Cards
Warren residents cannot currently come into our libraries to get a library card, but can still use some of our popular electronic resources by applying for a virtual library card. This card will allow temporary access to some of our eResources including: OverDrive, Freegal, RBdigital, and databases. It will also allow you to participate in our Imagine Your Story at home Summer Reading Program.
Note: To get full access to all library materials (including Hoopla and the ability to check out physical items) you will need to stop by the circulation desk at any Warren Public Library location once the libraries reopen and fill out an application.
