Library FAQ

What type of ID do I need to get a library card? Check out a book?

Other forms of ID may be acceptable as well; please click here for the complete Community Borrower policy.

I'm not an East Georgia State College student/faculty/staff member. Can I access Library collections?

Most areas in the Library are open to the public. If you sign up to be a Community Borrower, you can check out most materials. Materials in the Heritage Center and the Reference collection do not circulate, but may be viewed in-house.

Where do I get materials on Reserve for a course?

Reserve materials may be checked out from the main Circulation desk to be used in-house only. A current Catcard is required to check out Reserve materials.

Where do I return library materials?

All library materials can be returned to the Circulation desk during any hours the library is open. An outside book drop is located across from the Luck Flanders Gambrell Center on College Circle for your convenience for the return of books and periodicals and for after hours returns. Please return media items to the Circulation desk.
