Resident Student eCard Eligibility

If you're currently enrolled in a Massachusetts school and are living here while attending it you may be eligible for an eCard. In essence, this is just a clarification that we consider you resident if you're sleeping in the state every night because you're in college or a boarding school. It's okay if you still go home during school breaks or don't intend to make Massachusetts your permanent home.

If you stop attending school and are no longer living here, you will become ineligible for Boston Public Library services. Alumni status at a Massachusetts school does not, in itself, qualify any individual for an eCard.
