Great news!

We are now able to offer access to our in-library online databases to you in your own home! With your library card number and password, you can login to our portal page and HeritageQuest Online databases without being in the Seymour library! You do need to be a JCPL library user (Seymour, Crothersville, or Medora) to login, and your card must be active – remember, they expire every two years but can be reactivated for free. Didn’t realize your library card has a password? Stop into the library to get it reset (you’ll need your card and ID) so you can login to these remote databases as well as the Evergreen Indiana catalog to place holds on items and pick them up when they’re ready rather than guessing if they’ll be here or not.

Checkout audiobooks, ebooks, magazines, and streaming video with Libby. You only need your library card to access over 60,000 different items on your PC or other device.

You can use the website LibbyApp on your computer or install the Libby app from your device’s app store. Read this Getting Started Guide to get step by step instructions for using Libby.
