After I submitted that info, my account was activated in about 10 minutes
It appears that I have full privileges, but of course I'll only be accessing their digital media catalog.
Appreciate all the info you've provided us in this thread.
You're welcome. I'm glad things worked out for you.
Have you tried accessing the NYPL's Overdrive collection with your Brooklyn card? It would be interesting to know if it worked. According to their website you have privileges at both.
As a courtesy to other New York City library users, Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Public Library cardholders may use their existing cards once it is linked to NYPL.
