How to Access the Service

Note: All LA County Library locations, including the Claremont public library, are closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to the LA County Library Coronavirus Update page for more information.

You must first sign up for a free library card at the Claremont Public Library. We recommend you apply for a digital library card instead of a physical card, as you will still receive a library card number and PIN and can use that to access Otherwise, if you need a physical card, print and fill out the physical form and bring identification when you turn it in at any LA Country Library with sidewalk service. Students, if you have a California driver’s license, that will work. Otherwise the combination of your current student ID and an out of state driver’s license (or passport) will work.

Once you have a digital or physical library card, head to the LA County Library Lynda portal and enter your library card number and PIN.
