Internet access is available to FOL members, upon presentation of a membership card.
In compliance with the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), McGrath Library reserves the right to revoke computer privileges if computers are used for anything other than legitimate reasons.
What is the fine for an overdue book?

How long is the card valid?
The card is valid for one year from the date of the patron's registration. To join the Friend of the Library program at Hilbert College, please ask at the Library's Reference Desk.
Are there any services that are not available to me?
Library database use is reserved for Hilbert College students, faculty, and staff only.
