Library borrowing privileges to CNU graduates are limited and do not include remote access to the Library’s electronic resources or Interlibrary Loan privileges. CNU Alumni must be in the library in order to access Library databases.

Upon registering as a community patron, patrons read and agree to the statement below:
It is your responsibility to notify the Library of any address changes. All library materials must be returned or
renewed by their due date. All materials are subject to recall and must be returned upon notification. PATRONS
ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL MATERIALS CHECKED OUT ON THEIR CARDS AND ALL FINES INCURRED.
Failure to return books or pay fines will result in our sending debt information to a collection agency.
Community Patron library cards must be presented in order to check out materials. Library cards are not
transferable and may only be used by the person to whom they are issued.
Community patrons must obtain a Printing Card from the Main Circulation Desk. In order to print, a minimum of $1.00 needs to be added to the card via credit card at the Captains Cash Kiosk in the Computer Help Desk Room of the Library in order to use the Library printing system. Funds are added as Captains Cash. Printing and copying costs are $.10 per black & white page and $.25 per color page. Scanning to email is available for $.10 per page. Patrons must be signed in to one of the four guest computers and enter the card number when printing. (Updated 8/11/2023)
