Use library resources to research and learn

Your library card gives you access to a wealth of resources that can improve your life – all for free. That includes LawDepot, where you can get templates for documents like a lease agreement, will and power of attorney, as well as LinkedInLearning, where you can access thousands of online courses and the Florida Electronic Library, which has statewide job listings, government documents, journals, eBooks, newspapers, and more. They’re all under “resources” at our website,

Watch a movie

Cable bills and streaming services can really add up. With your Monroe County Public Library card, you have access to up to 12 play credits a month through Kanopy – which has thousands of titles, including documentaries and foreign films.

Don’t have a library card?

If you’re a Monroe County resident or property owner or active or retired military in the Keys and you don’t have a library card, you can register online here – you’ll need to visit a physical branch within three months to confirm your residency and get permission to check out physical materials.

To confirm your card – or browse our collection of books and DVDs as well as check out Library programs visit our branches in Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key and Key West. Questions? You can email us at any time and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
