Get a library card

During the closure of Schlow's physical building, we want to ensure easy access to all of Schlow's electronic resources. Beginning 3/14/2020, if you have lost your library card, have blocks on your card, or simply need a new card, feel free to sign up for a temporary library card and use that to access electronic resources. Please keep in mind that your new card will replace your old one. The information used to create a card online will be used to update existing accounts.
