An e-card, which replaces the remote library card option, is a card you can get 24/7 provided you are a Massachusetts resident. Once you complete the application, you will get an email with your e-card barcode and PIN (by default, your PIN is the last four digits of your phone number).
Depending on your residency, your e-card will grant access to Libby and possibly any e-resources your home library offers. You will need to get a physical card to borrow physical items.
Getting an E-Card
To get an e-card, patrons must not have an account in our system and must provide their legal first name, last name, physical address, telephone number, and email address using the form below. Successful applicants will receive an email with an e-card barcode, and their PIN will be set to the last four digits of their phone number.

Converting an E-Card to a Physical Card
Patrons with an e-card may convert their card to a physical card. An MVLC patron should go to their home library to convert their e-card. A non-MVLC patron should contact our Circulation Department at 978-671-0949 ext. 3 for guidance.
