Should I apply if I already have a Pratt Library card?

If you have a library card, you already have access to our growing online collections. Please visit any branch in person if you need to replace or renew your library card.

How do I find my eCard number and PIN?

Please call any Pratt branch to receive your eCard number and PIN. Staff will confirm your contact information to verify your account.

Do I need to renew my eCard?

You do not need to renew your eCard if you continue to use our services. Accounts that have not been used for a year will be deleted from our system. If your eCard is no longer valid, complete the online application to receive a new number.

Can I upgrade to a regular Pratt Library card?

If you would like to check out physical materials or access the library’s computers, bring ID to any Pratt branch to get a regular library card.

I upgraded my eCard and can’t login to OverDrive - what should I do?

I can log in to Kanopy but I am not allowed to checkout after upgrading my eCard - what should I do?

Update your new library card number in the ‘My Memberships’ section of Kanopy. If you have any issues, email your eCard and library card number to crc@prattlibrary.org.
