Update as of November 6, 2023

EVPL and EVSC are working to make eAccess cards available again for students. EVPL and EVSC have both had recent major information systems changes. Due to this, staff are determining how these new systems work together. We thank you for your patience as we work through these challenges and will inform you once we have successfully completed the eAccess card setup. Please know this is a high priority for both organizations.

What is an eAccess EVPL card?

eAccess EVPL Cards provide access to EVPL’s public computers, online databases, and digital collections.

Students seeking an eAccess card must be enrolled at one of the participating schools. If enrolled, students will receive their cards through the school. Individuals who are seeking other forms of an eAccess card can visit any of EVPL’s eight locations.

How do I access EVPL’s digital resources with my card?

To borrow digital materials, visit our Read, Watch, and Listen pages. If you would like to explore our databases, visit our Research page. When you access some resources outside of an EVPL location, you may be asked to provide your eAccess card number and PIN.

I would like to borrow physical library materials. How can I do this?

Borrowing physical library materials can be done with a Standard EVPL Card or one of our other cards types. For more information about EVPL cards, see our Library Cards page.
