What can I access and why?
Your access to online library services is determined by your residence address. This is because the library contracts with companies to provide those services, and the terms of those contracts limit who has access to them based on residence.
In some cases, our library joins with other libraries in Marin to obtain a subscription to a service. All Marin residents then have access to those services. In other cases, our library contracts alone, and then only the patrons living in our specific tax areas have access.
If you live in Marin
You can check which online services you have access to by entering your library card number below to find out which is your “Home Library”. Your Home Library relates to the tax area your home is in.
- If your Home Library is one of the branches of Marin County Free Library, then you will be able to access all eBooks, streaming services, online research, online learning, museum passes and other resources found on our website.
- If your Home Library is another library in Marin, then we suggest visiting that library’s website to see which services are available to you.
