These online resources are available from home to Middletown residents and may require your library card number.
Databases are available to all patrons from the library’s public computers and from any device on our wireless network.
Please note: The companies that provide our databases often set residency restrictions. Russell Library cannot do anything to provide access to non-residents. If you are not a resident of Middletown, please see the resources that say No Library Card Required.
