Beaumont Library cards are available to all California residents, but require a visit to the library to confirm your information, and can be used for all library materials, not just eMaterials.
The Instant Digital card can only be used to check out OverDrive eMaterials.
You can sign up for a Instant Digital Card by clicking here or click here to learn more about the Instant Digital Card.
You can sign up for a Instant Digital Card without coming into the library but you must be a district resident (i.e., live in Beaumont or Cherry Valley.)
