CW MARS has rolled out an electronic library card (eCard) to allow patrons without library cards faster access to their local library’s electronic collections. The CW MARS eCard makes library content more accessible for patrons who have difficulty physically getting to the library or who primarily borrow electronic content (such as eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, and databases). The eCard can be upgraded to a full library card by visiting your local CW MARS library.
The eCard is for patrons who do not already have a CW MARS library card and may be upgraded to a physical library card with borrowing privileges by visiting your local library. For more information about the eCard, read our FAQ.

Did you know that the Bigelow Free Public Library has Wi-Fi hotspots for Clinton residents to borrow with their library card? Are you going on vacation where the Wi-Fi might be sketchy (or non-existent)? Borrow a hotspot!
What is a hotspot?
Put simply, a portable hotspot taps into cellular networks, just like a smartphone does. Once it’s zeroed in on cellular data connection (using the T-Mobile/Sprint network), a mobile hotspot can share that connection via Wi-Fi with nearby smartphones, laptops, tablets, or any device that can connect to a Wi-Fi network.
