Alumni Borrowing Periods

Alumni living in the greater Philadelphia area (approximately a 50-mile radius) may borrow library items on a limited basis. Alumni living outside the greater Philadelphia area may use the library resources in-house, but may not borrow.

Alumni may borrow circulating printed materials for a total of 4 weeks (28 calendar days) and audio materials for a total of 7 calendar days.  Items may be renewed once sight-unseen, but must be brought in complete with all parts for a second renewal.

A $100 deposit is required to open a library account and become a borrower. You can end your borrowing privileges and get your deposit back at any time, as long as your account is in good standing with no items checked out or moneys owed.

Any item recalled for use by a current student, faculty member, or staff member, or for general institutional use, must be brought back as quickly as possible.

Daily Overdue Fines: 25 cents per item per business day (i.e. no fines are assessed for days on which the library is closed).
