PC Library has free online resources

Mike Seals - April 29, 2020 11:22 pm


The library is a member of the Oklahoma Virtual Library Consortium that offers over 50 thousand titles in both readable and audio formats. Bestsellers, old favorites, and emerging authors are available in both fiction and non-fiction for all ages of readers. You can have up to 6 titles at any time, and place holds on titles that are checked out but look interesting. This service is provided at no charge, and accessing the collections is pretty easy to learn.

The library has other great online content: RBDIgital, auto repair manuals, homework resources, Rosetta Stone, and much more. All of this can be found by visiting the City of Ponca City’s webpage at www.poncacityok.gov and going to the Library Department’s information and links page.

Want to get started today? If you already have a card, the library barcode is the card number and the PIN is the last 4 digits of the card number. For an e-card, the easiest way is to email:
[email protected] or [email protected] and then the library will set you up with an
e-card that allows you to have access to online selections. The library will call or email these requests by their preference. We will mail these cards to you or keep on file.
