While We Are Closed: Resources

Digital books, audiobooks, magazines, movies, and more…

Your Tilton Library card provides you with access to several collections of eBooks and eAudiobooks, and digital magazines. These electronic items can be downloaded onto your computer, tablet, eReader, or smart phone.

1) How do I access digital resources, like e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and videos?
There are two great ways to check out digital resources:
CWMARS Overdrive
Boston Public Library eCard

We are happy to help you access these digital resources. Just reach out!

2) What does Overdrive offer? 
The digital content includes: 110 magazine titles; almost 70,000 ebooks; almost 21,000 audiobooks; and around 1,500 videos.

NOTE: When signing in to C/W MARS Overdrive with your library card number, you will need your library account password. If you don’t remember your password and want to reset it, click here. 

3) What does a Boston Public Library eCard give me access to?
A lot! Explore their online resources to see what an eCard offers you. Resources include: Kanopy (movie streaming – including unlimited streaming for kids!); Hoopla Streaming Media; Classical Music Library (50,000+ tracks!); language learning; Ancestry; newspapers (New York Times); databases; online courses; and so much more.

4) What if I don’t have a library card?
In response to the ongoing pandemic, CW MARS libraries have voted to turn on the OverDrive Instant Digital Card, (IDC).

This card allows patrons who do not have a library card number access the CW MARS OverDrive collection.

When you access the CW MARS OverDrive collection, either through the website or the Libby app, you will be prompted to log in. If you do not have a library card number, click to get a free one instantly using your mobile number.

You will be asked for your mobile number. This is required for access. A one-time code will be sent via text message to ensure only someone in possession of the mobile device can use the number to register. Using your name and mobile number, OverDrive will then look up your address using a third-party service. A Date of Birth may also be required in some instances. OverDrive does not store DoB. If the address associated with your mobile number matches a zip code in your library’s service area, OverDrive will provide you access to the CW MARS digital collection.

Instant Digital Cards expire within one year. You can visit your local library to sign up for a full library card and extend your access. 

Instant Digital Card vs Library Card

If you already have a library card number, please use that card number instead of signing up for an IDC. You will have access to a wider range of resources with a library card, even in quarantine. 

In addition to the CW MARS Overdrive collection, a library card allows:

The Instant Digital Card only allows access to the CW MARS OverDrive collection.
 

Note: Your name, address, and mobile number may be shared with your local library. Your library may use this information to reach out to you and invite you to come in for a full library card.
