Answer

Anyone from the community is welcome to use the College library - here are a few guidelines.

The library hours are posted here.  Please pay attention to special hours during our school breaks, various vacations and summer.  Also, you can't enter the library after 10pm without a campus ID - but if you are already in the library we won't chase you out.

If you have a home address in this area, you can get a library card and check out a limited number of books.  Please talk to the staff at the circulation desk for the application.

You will not be able to log in to our computers or to use your own laptop or other computer to get on to the internet on campus.  However, we do have one computer in the library set up so that you can access our subscribed databases -- indexes, online journals, online books, etc.  Our licenses require that you be physically present in the library for that use (sorry - very retrograde in the electronic age, but it's a licensing thing).  Again, the circulation staff can point you to that computer.

While you are here you are welcome to use all the physical resources of the building.
