Berkeley College students and associates are encouraged to use their local public libraries. In order to obtain a public library card, a person needs to show a proof of residency. In some cases, a public library might also have a policy that allows a person working in that town to use the library services. However, you are encouraged to inquire with your local library, since the policies vary by town, county, and consortium.
- NYC students can get a NYC Public Library card with their student ID. Please check this library LibGuide for more info.
- Woodbridge Campus students can use Woodbridge Public Library with the Berkeley College ID and a letter from the campus library.
- Newark Campus students can use Berkeley College ID as their proof of residency to access Newark Public Library.
If your local public library is a part of a larger consortium of libraries, with your public library card you will have reciprocal borrowing privileges available for the members of the consortium.
