Digital Content

The following Internet-based services can be accessed from computers, tablets, and smartphones.

These are available only to library cardholders who live within the Parchment Community Library district.  

Those with Reciprocal Borrower cards may access digital content through their home libraries.

Use the number on the back of your library card to log in.

(Your card number must begin with a 7 and have six digits. If it doesn't,  stop in and we'll give you a free replacement card.)

We have extended the expiration date of all expired patron cards to June 1, so that no account will be blocked from access to digital content because it has reached its annual expiration date.  

If you receive a message from Hoopla or OverDrive that your card is not valid, please send an email to ref@parchmentlibrary.org and we will look into it as soon as possible.

Please note:  Reciprocal Borrower cards, and cards with more than $50 in unreturned and overdue materials, will not be able to access our digital library.
