Chatham County library cards now available online for digital resources

Pittsboro, NC – Even though Chatham County Libraries are closed to the public right now, you can still access content! The libraries have curated a list of digital content and online learning resources that can be accessed via computer, tablet, or other smart device to keep users engaged with content made available to Chatham County Public Library users with current library accounts, as well as to students enrolled in the ChathamPASS program and to the general public.

Many of the digital and online learning resources are available without having a Chatham County library card.

If you are new to the area or just discovering the library’s online resources, you can apply for a library account online while we’re closed! Your account will give you access to digital resources including OverDrive/Libby. For more details and to apply online for a library card, go here.

All you need to get a Chatham County library card is to be at least 5 years old and live in Chatham, Alamance, Durham, Harnett, Lee, Moore, Orange, Randolph or Wake County. Also, anyone who works in Chatham County despite living outside the county can get a library card. After submitting an application, library staff will contact you to issue you a library account number. Once libraries reopen for public use, those who applied online will be able to pick up a physical card with a valid photo ID in order to borrow on-site materials.
