The member libraries of the Westchester Library System form a consortium that enable us to collectively purchase a wide range of digital materials. The Town of Pelham Public Library also independently purchases digital resources such as Consumer Reports and the Nuwav documents planning portal for use for Pelham patrons only. You will need a library card to log in to most of these platforms, some of which have lending limits. If you are asked for a user name and password, enter your library card number and PIN (usually the last four digits of the card number on the account.)
