Austin Public Library Debuts new eCard
Austin Public Library now offers an eCard, which provides Austin residents 18 years and older access to the electronic resources available in the Virtual Library. The eCard is intended to help homebound adults and busy Austinites access the library’s collection of electronic books, audio, music, and magazines without having to visit a library branch in person.
The eCard will give you 24/7 access to the Virtual Library:
- Explore and use the Library's electronic resources, including articles and databases
- Download and stream eBooks, eAudiobooks, music, and movies to your device anytime, anywhere.
To receive an eCard number, residents need to bring a valid photo ID and proof of their current address to an APL branch. Those with APL cards have access to the Virtual Library. Click here to apply online.
