The library catalog gives you the ability to view all physical items located in the library. This includes books, movies, CD’s, DVD’s, Blu-ray Discs, Playaways, and more. In addition to viewing items available at your library you have access to 50+ libraries within our co-op. Most items can be placed on hold and you will receive a call or email when your item is ready to be picked up.
The digital media catalog gives you instant access to downloadable audio books and e-books. This service supports a number of MP3 players, e-readers and color tablets. All items are checked out for 7, 14 or 21 days and are automatically returned once they expire. Due to strong demand, there is a limit of having 10 items checked out at one time.
The digital magazines catalog gives you unlimited and simultaneous access to approximately 200 magazine titles. This service supports various color tablets as well as PC/Mac computers. You may only download the most recent edition of each magazine title; however, once added to your account the title is accessible until you choose to delete it. This collection is generously funded by the Friends of the Library .
MeLCat is a supplemental catalog that can be used to request items from other libraries when it cannot be found in the library catalog. Because shipping times are longer with this service it is highly recommended that you check the library catalog before proceeding to MelCat.
MeL Databases provides a number of online resources for doing research, tests and career building online. These databases are free to all Michigan residents. If accessing from home you will need to have a valid library card or driver’s license.
