Your Library Online

MFRL is open 24 hours a day on the web!

When you use our databases, you have available many more reference sources, magazines, and periodicals than we could possibly provide in print format.

Our Online Resources provide a suite of unmatched tools including Language Classes, Online Education, Homework Help, Audiobook Downloads and more, all for free!

There is no charge for using your online library. Choose a category from the menu on the left to get started, or browse the library's entire list of Online Resources and Databases.

If you are outside of the library you may need to verify that you are a library patron. If you are not automatically authorized, you may need to enter your 14 digit library card number to access the databases. Any special instructions will appear at the top of the page for each database.
