1. Register for a Boston Public Library (e-card) by clicking on this link: https://www.bpl.org/contact/form_ecard.php. When it asks for a pin number, make up a 4-digit number that is easy to remember.
2. You will instantly receive an email with a 13-digit number. Save this number in a Word document, along with your pin number and call the Word document "BPL". This will enable you to access the login number to copy and paste any time you need to log into the BPL databases.
