Your patrons are able to create a Family account under your public library license. Doing this will allow them to access advanced features such as our virtual classrooms, assignment system, and more.

Creating a Family Account

To create a Family account, a patron will need to first log into Fathom using their library card credentials. From there, they can visit the 3x3 dot grid in the top right-hand corner and click 'Create an Account.'

You can view other statistics such the number of times a book has been opened, number of quizzes taken, and more by clicking the View All button at the top right of the statistics widget.
