• You are welcome to use the print reference, periodicals, and electronic resources on-site during regularly posted hours. Hours vary, so check the website or call us. 

• If you are interested in seeing our special collection of older and rare materials, this can be arranged if you call ahead.



You may borrow circulating items overnight, or for the length of your stay. Just bring your items to the service desk.


Would you like to borrow books and other materials, even if you are not enrolled in a class?

There are three ways to do this:

1) ask your local library to place an interlibrary loan. We are part of the OCLC system, and can send materials to your local library.

2) See if your library is part of the Research Loan Program on Long Island. If so, they can issue you a temporary card, and you can come here to borrow materials.

3) Come visit us in person and apply for a courtesy card for borrowing privileges.


Can't get here, but still have a question or an information need?

We can try to help you if you call or email us.
