    Borrowing Materials

    Community members of the Spokane area who are 18 years old or older may obtain borrowing privileges from EWU Libraries.  In most cases, community borrowers receive the same loan periods as EWU undergraduate students.

    To obtain a library card, you will need:

    Bring these forms of ID to either the Cheney campus JFK Library Circulation Desk on the main level or to the Spokane Academic Library.

    Electronic Resources Available

    You may use our EWU Library Search anywhere, but to use our other online resources (article databases, etc.) you must come to the library.

    Computer Use

    Microsoft Office software is not available for community members. 

    Printing & Photocopying

    Minors in the Library

    Community members between the ages of 12 and 17 may obtain borrowing privileges from EWU Libraries with the written consent of a parent or legal guardian. The parent/guardian must accompany the 12-17 year old to the library to obtain a card.
