Kids’ Resources

Getting Started

If you access our online databases while at the library, just click on the database you are interested in and begin exploring. If you are using a computer outside the library, you will get an OCLC login screen that will ask for a username (your library card number) and password (your library card PIN). Due to contractual agreements, not all borrower accounts may be able to access these resources from outside the library, in which case we encourage you to visit the library to use our computers.
