Library Cards and Loan Periods
Barcoded Library Cards are needed by anyone checking materials out of the library and using Reserve material. Individuals associated with Albright college will be furnished with a library barcode on the reverse side of the college identification card issued by Public Safety and Security. Non-college patrons wishing to be issued a library card should inquire at the circulation desk. Replacement ID cards are issued by Safety and Security, while replacement red library cards are available at the circulations desk for a $5 fee.
We have a 42-day loan period for students. Coutesy borrowers have a 28 day loan period. Faculty/staff borrow for a 4 month period. Some items may be renewed in person or online.
Suspension of Borrowing Privileges
Patrons who do not abide by the library rules, including the timely return of borrowed materials, payment of lost materials, and who do not respect the library, its collections or its patrons may have their borrowing privileges suspended.
