Oceanside Library

 
TEMPORARY DIGITAL LIBRARY CARD

Nassau Library System is offering Oceanside residents the option of registering for a digital-access-only, short-term library “card" offering access to things like eBooks, audiobooks, live tutoring, digital magazines, language courses, test prep, and more!  Even now, your library is here to help you learn, grow, and entertain your kids!

How this works:
Patrons apply via this special NLS website
.

NLS staff will verify the responses and code the cards, and transmit the barcode number to the new patron electronically.  NOTE: Please be aware that NLS is working remotely and with limited staff so a response may not be immediate.

Digital-only cards will expire on September 1, 2020.  If the Library is closed beyond that date, we will look to have this date extended.


Please note: If you currently have an Oceanside library card but can not find your barcode number, please reach out to NLS using the same link.  They can reconnect you with your barcode number, renew your card if it has expired but is still in the system, and help you reset your PIN.  Thank you to NLS staff for going above and beyond to help provide the best service for all Nassau patrons!!



What patrons are allowed to do:
Patrons will be allowed to borrow digital content from OverDrive via Nassau Digital Doorway.

Patrons will be able to borrow digital magazines through rbDigital.

Patrons (over 18 years of age) will be able to borrow then stream or download audiobooks, movies, TV shows, music, eBooks, comics and graphic novels through Hoopla Digital.

Patrons will be allowed to use library databases remotely (as well as resources on Oceanside 24/7/365) as most databases and digital services do require your 14-digit Oceanside Library barcode number.

These digital-only cards will not allow for physical item checkouts or hold placement through the online catalog.  Please stop by after the library reopens and we will be happy to issue you a new card allowing you to make use of all our library services.

This is advantageous for our patrons who are quarantined and/or self-isolating or have cards that have expired and are no longer in the library system.

As we cannot be sure when the Library will be open and able to resume traditional service, this temporary service will allow access to our resources for a wider number of users in our community.
