The Anderson County Library System is now offering temporary digital library cards for anyone who lives or works in Anderson County. These cards will provide full access to all of the Library’s digital resources, including eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, streaming movies, and online learning tools. This is part of the Library’s continued limited service while buildings remain closed to the public due to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
To apply for your temporary digital library card, call the Library at (864) 260-4500 from 9:00 am- 6:00 pm Monday-Saturday and 2:00 – 6:00 pm on Sunday. Staff will ask for basic information, including address and contact information. Once the Library reopens, patrons can come in with ID and proof of address to turn temporary digital library cards into physical library cards.
A temporary digital library card provides full access to free learning and entertainment resources while the Library remains closed to the public. Many of these are available online at www.AndersonLibrary.org or can be downloaded as a free app on most devices:

·         Read new and recent issues of popular magazines through Flipster
·         Take online classes with Universal Class
·         Take practice tests and tutorials for the PSAT, SAT, GED, and many more with LearningExpress Library
