Temporary Library Card

Melrose residents who do not currently have a library card, but would like access to our online resources, please call (781-665-2313) or email (mel@noblenet.org) with all of the following information:

– Full name
– Street address
– Telephone number
– Email address
– Birth date

You will receive a temporary library card number and PIN via email, which will allow you to access our online services that require a card. This card will expire in three months.  Upon re-opening, we will revert to our normal procedures.  Temporary card holders will be able to come to the library with their photo ID and proof of address to convert their temporary cards to permanent cards.

What’s all the hoopla?

The Melrose Public Library now subscribes to hoopla – a digital media service that allows Melrose residents* to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even your TV! There are no holds and no waiting – titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded to phones or tablets. There are thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily.  see more…

 

*Non-residents should contact their home library for information on accessing hoopla.
