Community Users - Library Accounts

Onondaga County residents may borrow library materials, but they must first register as a community borrower and show a form of photo ID (usually a NYS driver's license) to receive a library card. After the patron fills out a registration card, a Coulter Library card is issued, and s/he may borrow up to 15 (fifteen) items at one time.

Community patrons must have a library card to check out library materials, and are responsible for all items charged to their account. It is the patron's responsibility to inform the library of a lost or stolen card, or change of address or phone number. Patrons in violation of any library policy may lose their privileges at the discretion of the librarian.

NOTE: A community patron does not need an ID card to use the computers in the library. There is no database access off-campus for community patrons, but the library's online catalog may be accessed anywhere.
