Visitor (Non Resident or Temporary) Borrower
- Visitors from out-of-state or abroad are welcome to use the Library’s resources on-site, many of which do not require the issuance of a library card. For access to Research Libraries’ collections, non-residents may be issued a free temporary library card on-site, with an expiration date reflecting the brevity of their stay.
- These card types are available to applicants who do not live, work, attend school or pay property taxes in the state of New York, who present an equivalent form of ID for their locality.
- With the exception of a much sooner expiration date (a maximum of three months from the date of issuance), all other registration procedures and privileges are applicable.
