Library District resources are at your fingertips.
You can access the library's complete catalog,
selected databases, reference resources, and library
information from anywhere-just log on to the Web
and go to www.scld.org. Our website is
available 24 hours a day.
In addition, our ten libraries offer access to the World
Wide Web and many additional electronic databases.
You can instantly locate any one of more than
450,000 items in the library collection through
our website and in our libraries. Using your library
card number and PIN you can check on your account,
place requests, and renew materials. A PIN may
be obtained at any library.
You can access our many online databases from
any library, and most are also available through
our website using your library card number to
verify that you're an eligible Spokane County
Library District customer. Online databases include
magazine and newspaper articles; science, business,
auto repair, and biographical, genealogy, and
homework-related information; and encyclopedias.
You can search the Internet's World Wide Web from
computers located in all libraries. In compliance
with the federal Children’s Internet Protection Act,
access for everyone under 17 years old is filtered
to block sexually-explicit Web sites. Customers age
17 and older have the option of disabling the filtering
software for their use. You should be aware that this
software isn't foolproof. It may miss blocking some
intended sites and it may accidentally block other sites.
