Resources and Digital Library Cards

As many of you know, the Library will remain closed until further notice. While the Library may be physically closed, there are some Library services that you can use, electronically, if you have access to the Internet, either via computer or from your tablet/phone.  These services are free. 
 
These resources can be found on here, on the website.  If you already have a Library card, you can use the barcode -- located on the back of the card -- along with the PIN number -- the last four digits of the barcode -- to access e-books and/or audio books from OMNI Libraries (Online Media of Northern Illinois), Libby (an simpler version of Overdrive), and/or e-Read Illinois.  You can also access full-text articles from EBSCO and genealogy research from either Heritage Quest or Ancestry. 
 
In order to provide access to these databases to those that don't have a Library card, we are issuing temporary digital cards to individuals that live with Distrct 122 LaSalle Schools or Tonica Grade School District 79.  If you live within either of these school districts, you can send an email to:
 
digitallibrarycards@lasalle.lib.il.us.
 
Please provide email address, first and last name, street address, zip code, phone number and, if the applicant is under seventeen years old, the parent/guardian's name and address.   The Library can issue these cards because the Library is supported through property taxes paid by residents of the City of LaSalle. This service is extended to the Village of Tonica through an intergovernmental agreement.
 
Library staff is also providing assistance in homework help to students, parents, and/or teachers to further remote learning.  If you have any questions or need resources, please email: remotelearning@lasalle.lib.il.us. 
 
Finally, in order for people to access information on their own devices, our wireless network is available 24/7. The signal is accessible at both entrances to the Library, as well as in the parking lot. If using the wireless, please maintain social distancing if others are using it as well. Login information is as follows:

Please stay safe and well but remember we are all in this together.
