How can I obtain a Westchester Library System card?

As a Purchase College student or employee, you are eligible for a Westchester Library System card (public library card). A WLS card allows you to borrow materials and access electronic resources including (now LinkedIn Learning), Overdrive (ebooks), kanopy (movies), Hoopla (ebooks, movies, music), audiobooks, and more!

If you are a Westchester resident, you will need to apply through your hometown library to obtain a card.

If you are not a resident of Westchester County, but you are a member of the Purchase College community, you can apply online through Harrison Public Library or Purchase Free Library. Both libraries are in the Town of Harrison and both serve our school as crucial partners. The online application takes minutes and you will generally have your card in 1-2 days. If you have any issues with the online application process, please email us and we will contact the Purchase Free Library for backup.
