eAccess Cards

We go beyond books! 

If you only wish to access our online resources (for download and streaming, language learning, resume help, etc.), sign up for an electronic access (eAccess) card. Only available to Meriden residents, ages 18 and over. 

Your eAccess card will be processed and activated in 1-2 business days. 

Please note: This is for an eAccess card only. For a full access library card to take out materials in person, please complete the regular Meriden Public Library card application HERE.

I verify that I do not already have a Meriden Public Library card and/or that I have not recently submitted a libary card application.  (If you have submitted a library card application, filling out this form is not necessary.)
