Special Databases with a wealth of Information!

The Monroe County Library system has special databases that are available only to Monroe County library card holders.
All these databases are electronic versions of physical books, magazines, newspapers and other published materials. They are different from a traditional website because they have citations from the book that they appeared in.

These databases are available in every public library in Monroe County, and from your PC at home or at work. Some individual libraries also carry databases that are only available to library card holders of their town.

I have listed a small sample of all the databases that we carry. For a complete listing, check out the county library website and click on magazines and databases.
