eBooks & Downloads

Great resources to use while the library is closed!

The Library building is currently closed - but our digital materials are always available to access with your Hingham Library card! If you don’t have a library card, sign up for an eCard by visiting the Library’s catalog and clicking "Log In" in the upper right. An eCard will grant you access to digital materials in Overdrive/Libby, Hoopla, RB Digital magazines, Mango languages, and many of our reference databases.

Please contact us if you need assistance accessing any of our digital materials.
