Yes! Any Massachusetts resident or student is eligible for a Boston Public Library (BPL) card or an eCard. Use either card to access BPL's electronic resources remotely. 

An eCard is a Boston Public Library card that you can sign up for online, and which provides access to all online resources, including OverDrive and Hoopla.

eCards are available to anyone who lives, resides part-time to attend school, owns property, or works in Massachusetts.
