All Avon residents in need of a library card – you’re in luck!
We are currently issuing library card numbers by email while we are closed to the public. You will then have full access to all of our e-resources including eBooks, audiobooks, streaming movies and more!
Please send an email to email@example.com to request your library card number! Staff will be working remotely from home, and will respond to your email within 24-48 hours.
Once we re-open to the public, you will need to visit the library in person (with photo ID and proof of residency) to pick up your library card – and we will be so happy to see you! Our hope is that by having access to all of our online resources, it will provide some degree of entertainment, enrichment and comfort during this stressful time.

We will also be returning to our full day Saturday hours, with the library open from 10-5, on Saturdays, beginning September 8.
