Databases

To access these databases outside of a library branch, you may be asked to enter a valid County of Lennox & Addington Libraries card number (using no spaces) and PIN. Please note that we have had to end our subscriptions with several of our databases as a result of the cuts to the provincially funded Tier 1 program.
