Borrow Library Materials

Borrowing Information - Community Members

Welcome to Circulation Services at Western Libraries! When Western Libraries is open to the public, Western Libraries offers two options for community members to borrow library materials: The Whatcom One Card or the Western Libraries Courtesy Card.

Please note that both the Wilson and Haggard sides of the library are only accessible via the Haggard Hall library entrances, and the north doors at the Wilson entrance will remain closed for the time being. In keeping with Western Washington University’s health and safety requirements, all individuals must be masked at all times when indoors. This includes when inside library facilities, other indoor public spaces on Western's campus, and WWU transportation.

Please see below for loan periods, fines, and other information that applies to Western Libraries when it is open to the public.
