Alumni Access to Books & Other Library Materials

What do I need to do to borrow materials? 

All alumni need photo IDs to borrow materials.

If you have not yet borrowed materials as an alum or have not recently borrowed from Lavery Library, please consider emailing or calling ahead so that we may verify your alumni access during daytime business hours (7:30-3:30 Monday-Friday). 

If you are unable to call ahead, or if your first visit is during our evening/weekend hours, there may be a slight delay in borrowing materials while we verify your access. We will gladly place items on hold for you while we verify your access, and you are always welcome to use materials and databases within the building. 

Call us: 585-385-8165 or email us:
