What is SmartLibrary?


SmartLibrary brings together the collections available at 12 libraries in the Nation Capital Region.

Getting a SmartLibrary Card

You need a SmartLibrary card to borrow from the lending libraries. Active members at partner libraries can ask for a SmartLibrary card at their home library. Card members are responsible for the management of their materials and any fines or charges that may result from their use of materials.

Each library has specific rules about how to access these materials.
