The physical Library is closed until further notice, and all library services have moved online.

Barcode Activation and Circulation Help
If you need to activate your barcode remotely, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or select the "Circulation Help" department via the chatbox on this page. Questions about library blocks, fines, or other circulation and reserve issues? Circulation staff are available to answer your questions via email or chat Mon-Fri 9am-5pm.

Fines and Renewals
In recognition of the extraordinary circumstances, overdue and recall fines will not be charged for books, DVDs, or equipment for the rest of the semester. Books from the stacks can be renewed up to nine times as long as another library patron does not place a recall. CUNY will be auto-renewing books and materials and waiving fines. These changes apply to faculty, staff, and students. To learn more, visit CUNY's statement on the continuity of library services.
