March 20, 2020
As you are aware, due to the COVID-19 corona virus, the library is closed for the purpose of obtaining a library card and borrowing our print and media collections.
However, we have a vast array of online resources for you on our website http://www.tewksburypl.org and we will be highlighting these collections on our various social media platforms as well as in our weekly email newsletter.
Our digital collections are accessed with your TPL card.
If you DO NOT have a TPL card and you are a resident or employee of the Town of Tewksbury, we will temporarily waive the in-person requirement to show ID and proof of residency.
After you complete one of the ways to apply for a library card, we will email you a copy of your e-library card number and PIN. You can start using it immediately to access our online collections.
The e-Library card is temporary and will expire in 90 days. You may come in anytime when we re-open to make your temporary e-Library card a permanent library card for use in the library or online.
Please Note: In order to provide fair access for all residents, there may be limits placed on the quantity or duration of use depending upon the contract we have with our online vendors. Thank you for your understanding.
If you are not sure if you have a TPL Library Card, please call us at 978-640-4490 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to check for you.
Please choose one method of obtaining your card. Here are your choices as of 3/19/2020:
- Email us at email@example.com with the following information: Full Name, Street Address, Town, Daytime or Evening Phone Number, Email Address and Birthdate.
- Complete the Web Form on our “Library Card Applications” page under About Us on our website: tewksburypl.org
- Call the Library at 978-640-4490, ext. 202 and we will take your information over the phone. Please leave a message if we cannot answer; we will return your call.
Feel free to choose the method that suits you best. We hope that you and your family and friends remain healthy.
Thank for your support of the TPL as we adjust our services during this unusual situation.
Diane Giarrusso, Library Director
