Your Journey Begins Here


Cromaine District Library provides many different research tools for its cardholders. Subscription databases provide a wealth of information on topics ranging from finding your ancestors to elementary-level research. The information in these databases is often easier to find and more reliable than what you can find on the World Wide Web. NOTE: Most, but not all, databases allow access from home. These are labeled Available Everywhere. Databases which you must be in the library buildings to use are labeled Available at Cromaine.

Don't have an eReader device? Don't worry; eBooks can be read right on your computer as long as you download the free Adobe Digital Editions software. Check out our collection of eBooks today at the links below.

MeLCat services suspended until March 1, 2016

MeLCat, the Michigan Electronic Library's online catalog of resources at libraries across the state has suspended services for Cromaine and Cromaine Library's patrons, beginning November 2, 2015.
If you have a MeLCat item, please return it as promptly as possible.
Once all items have been returned, MeLCat will transition Cromaine Library to a new connection and will need to reconstruct Cromaine services.
MeLCat is not expected to be available again until March 1, 2016.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. However, be sure to check Cromaine's expanded TLN Enterprise Catalog. Over one million titles with five million items are available for self-initiated borrowing from over 50 libraries in southeastern Michigan. The TLN Enterprise Catalog is live November 19, 2015.
