The Cumberland County Public Library & Information Center offers access to a number of resources. To get a library card, preregister online or go to any library branch with a photo ID and proof of a Cumberland County address. Children younger than 16 need parental approval to get a card.
Every branch has a public-access computer lab and laptops available for checkout with internet access within the library. A library card or a free, temporary computer-use card is required to use the computers. Those who don’t have a card may use 15-minute express terminals.
Cardholders have access to e-books, audiobooks, children’s materials, and music and videos. The library also has guides to online learning, home-schooling, jobs and careers, and it offers homework help for kids.
The Local & State History Room, at the Headquarters Library downtown, is a good resource for genealogy and researching local history.
