Select any subject to get started. Ready to try it out for yourself? If you are on a device connected to the library’s network, clicking the links above will take you directly to the unlocked website. If you are not in the library, you will be prompted for your library barcode number. Enter the whole number with no spaces. If your card is rejected, there could be a few reasons:

  • There is a space somewhere in the number entered. Solution: try entering the number again.
  • Your library card has expired. Solution: contact us to renew your card.
  • Your library card is no longer in good standing (too many fines/fees/overdue items). Solution: login to your account and pay any fines/fees accrued. Then try again.
  • You are not a resident of East Greenbush/Schodack. Solution: contact the library where you pay taxes and request Consumer Reports access.
  • You are a resident, but to do not have a resident card. Solution: contact us to prove residency and we will issue a new resident card at no charge.
