Get an eCard to borrow electronic resources right now!

An eCard is a Merrimack Valley Library Consortium library card which provides access to electronic resources: e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines, streaming music & videos, and databases.

The eCard is for those who do not already have an MVLC library card. You must be a resident of Massachusetts.

Questions or problems? Contact us at or 978-674-4120.


Do I need an eCard if I already have a library card?

No, your pre-existing library card provides all the benefits of an eCard, plus access to the physical collection, museum passes, etc.

If you are unsure of your library card # and/or pin, please contact the Library at 978-674-4120 to speak with a staff member about gaining access.

How can I gain access to the physical collection with an eCard?

Requesting physical materials from our library and others, including using our museum passes, requires a full-usecard. eCards can be upgraded to full-usecards at 401 Merrimack Street  with proof of name and proof of your Massachusetts address. We also offer the option to email or mail a scan of your proof if you are unable to come to the building. Contact the Library for specific details.

Please check your junk or spam folders to see if your credentials have accidentally been sent there if you have not yet received your eCard number. 

Note: At this time, we have had issues with contacting students who have an email with the domain – please use another email.

Only one card (eCard or full-use) is permitted per individual. If you believe that you already have a card, call us at 978-674-4120 for assistance on gaining access to your information, or for details on how to get a replacement card.
