The library district offers a variety of databases and most will require your library card number and PIN/password for access. Your library card number is the 14-digit number on the back of your library card and your PIN/password, unless you have changed it, is automatically set to be the four-digit year you were born.

Most of our databases can be accessed inside the library without a library card except Creativebug, LinkedIn Learning, and Tutor.com. However, you will need to create a separate account to access Creativebug, Learning Express, The New York Times, and Transparent Language.

Florida Electronic Library (FEL) does not require a library card for access because it is provided to residents of Florida by the Florida Department of State's Division of Library and Information Services. The only time you will need to enter your library card number will be if you are outside the state of Florida. For more information on FEL, check out their FAQs.
