What library privileges do Friends of the Library have?

Friends can get a library card with their membership dues, and borrow up to ten books and other library items at a time.  These items can be checked out for three weeks at a time, with up to two renewals per item.  While guest access to the library is currently restricted, see our FAQ on how Friends can still borrow books.

Friends cannot access the library's research databases, online journals, or e-books from off campus, because the database license agreements only provide access to current Meredith students, faculty, and staff. While Friends can normally access the library's databases from public computers in the library building, guest access is being restricted during the pandemic.
