Los Angeles County Library (not to be confused with the Los Angeles Public Library) is offering temporary digital library cards to any resident, which will be valid for 90 days.

The decision comes in the wake of the library’s 86 branches closing through the end of March because of coronavirus. With a temporary card, users can access the organization’s e-books, audiobooks, magazines, movie and TV streaming, homework help, online classes, and more.

To sign up, any L.A. County resident can go to the library’s website.

The Los Angeles Public Library has also shut down its locations, and those with existing cards can still access their digital resources as well.
