Explore The Cecil County Public Library From Home

on a computer at home

The Cecil County public library offers more than just new releases of books and movies. It has evolved to provide hundreds of databases, programs, courses to take, and skills to learn. The best part is, all of this is available without ever leaving your Newark apartment. Check out these three library services you can use from home. 

Electronic Resources

Summer is the perfect time to get lost in a new thriller or mystery, and this season is no different! Try an eBook or eAudiobook from your Cecil County Public Library. Simply download the Overdrive app, enter your library and library card number, and browse your new digital collection. You have thousands of options, and with electronic books, you never have to worry about late fees again. When your loan period is over, the title returns itself. Easy, convenient, and free. 

Gale Courses 

Use this summer to evolve and enrich yourself with online learning. Gale Courses is a completely free database of six-week classes that are taught by experts in the field. New sessions begin each month, and you just need your library card to get started. Take anything from accounting, personal development, publishing, or even music composition. If you find you’re not enjoying a course, just withdraw and try another next month! Completely risk-free. Who knew you could learn all these new skills without ever leaving your Newark apartment?


We saved the best for last. It’s time to get crafting! Creativebug gives you access to thousands of craft video-classes that are led by expert artists. All you need is your library card and the desire to DIY. Learn how to make a planner, knit a scarf, sew a winter coat, or print your own stationery. The options are endless. Find your next fun project with Creativebug. 

These are just three of the wonderful services your Cecil County Public Library provides. For more information on what’s happening in your community, check out our blog. To schedule a virtual tour of our pet-friendly apartments, contact us today.
