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.
You are eligible to apply for a CW MARS eCard, if you…
- live in a Massachusetts town with a CW MARS member library,
- are age 13 or older,
- and do not currently have a library card from a CW MARS member library.
Contact your local library if you are not eligible to register online or to renew an expired card.
Funding for electronic content is provided by CW MARS member libraries, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
