Nassau County
(ALL Public Library Buildings in Nassau County are currently CLOSED.)

In an effort to provide improved access to digital resources, certain Nassau public libraries have enabled the following digital card application. Upon approval, these cards will last until June 30th. Please note that this card is for digital services only, and cannot be used to borrow physical materials from any of our member libraries, or place requests for physical items from any library.

In addition, these applications are not automated. We expect there may be high demand for these cards, so please be patient as we do the best we can to get your digital card to you quickly. Staff will create your online library card as soon as possible and transmit this information to you by email.
