Welcome Students, Families, and Educators

We are so glad you stopped by to visit and want you to know that the Allegany County Library System is here for you and your family during this time to help connect family, friends, fun, and learning.   We are working hard to make this time, of distancing from each other physically, a time that we can still “connect” and support you and your family through the various online and electronic platforms available.

Students, you have a library card, a STAR Card!

Every student enrolled at a participating Allegany County School is registered for a STAR Card with no sign-up needed! STAR Cards allow instant access to our online resources and databases and allow up to three books to be checked out at a time.
