Community Borrower Information

Community Borrower cards allow members of the community who are not associated with NMT to check out library materials. Community borrowers may check out most items from our general collection for thirty days. All DVDs may be checked out for three days. Community borrowers are not eligible to use Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Computers: We have a number of computers available for reference and internet use free of charge. To get a community computer pass, please bring a valid photo ID to the Circulation Desk. Passes are good for two hours of computer use and can be obtained once per day. Children under 17 years of age need to be under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian.

WiFi Access: If you wish to use the library's WiFi through your own device, please bring a valid photo ID to the Circulation Desk to obtain a pass. WiFi passes are good for two hours.

Renewals: Please bring items for renewal to the Circulation Desk. Reserve materials and DVDs may not be renewed.

Fines: See our fines policy for information on billing for overdue, lost, and damaged items.
