Who can borrow Library materials?

Current Purchase College students, faculty, and staff who present a valid Purchase College ID card may borrow library materials according to the loan periods specified on the Borrowing & Renewing page.

Due to system limitations and the COVID situation, the following affiliations will not be able to borrow books and materials:

  • Friends of the Library
  • Manhattanville College students and faculty
  • Students and faculty from SUNY institutions
  • Faculty from WALDO (Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization) institutions

Guests, alumni, and community members not affiliated with the above institutions do not have borrowing privileges. Due to COVID, use of the Library’s on-site materials is also limited only to current Purchase ID cardholders; guests are not allowed to visit the Library.
