Want to finish off your family tree while you have some time on your hands? Well, the public library has got you covered.
For those who already use the library online (either with OverDrive or Libby) I encourage you to expand beyond just e-books. The library offers many other wonderful resources, now is a great time to dive in, including: audio books, magazines, foreign language books, movies and more.
But for now... and only for a short time, you can access Ancestry.com for free using your library card. If this is interesting to you I encourage you to get on the project asap... like now. We're not sure when the agreement with Ancestry will end, some even may be as soon as April 30 (yes... that's in two days), so log in and get your questions answered now.
To get access to Ancestry you will need your library card and your PIN (usually the last 4 digits of your phone number).
If you don't yet have a library card, don't worry! The library has you covered. You can now get one by applying online. Once you have your card you will be able to access both Ancestry and all of OverDrive as well.
And if you have any questions about OverDrive feel free to post them in the comments section below.
Happy reading (and researching)!
