• eCards are provided to Urbana residents to try out our eResources. Once your eCard expires, you'll need to come to the Library and convert the card to a regular Library card to continue access to eResources and get full access to all the Library's resources. eCard patrons who live within the Library’s taxing district may convert their eCard to a full-use library card at any time by making a Curbside Pickup appointment or coming to the Circulation Desk, where you will need to show a photo ID and proof of current Urbana address (such as a utility bill).
  • Click here to get an eCard. Be sure to make note of the user name and numerical password (PIN) you enter along with the temporary barcode issued when the form is submitted. You will need this information to access the Library's eResources.
  • Once you register, you'll have 90 days of access to our Databases and eBooks & More collections.
  • If you already have a card from The Urbana Free Library, you do not need to register for an eCard. Use your current barcode and numerical password (PIN) to access eResources.
