Do I need a library card?

Your WJC issued ID is your library card.

Do I need to renew my library account?

No, your account will be renewed annually by the library.

How long may I check books out?

For staff members, books from Curry Library will be due back the following May after they are checkout out.

Ex. a book checked out in June of 2022 or in April 2023 will be due in May 2023.

Lending periods for books checked out from other libraries (including MOBIUS checkouts) will vary, but typically their checkout times will be one month in length.

Can I request books from other libraries?

Yes, staff members of WJC may use MOBIUS and Interlibrary Loan services to request physical items (such as books, CDs and DVDs) from other libraries.

I want to use library resources (such as books or movies) for personal use instead of professional development. Is that allowed?

Yes. The library provides access to resources for all WJC students, staff, and faculty without prescription or judgment of their use. 

Can I meet with a librarian for assistance with research or finding a book/item to request or checkout or use?

Yes. All WJC staff are patrons of Curry Library, and so may use all library services including research support services. To ask a question or to set up a research appointment, click on the Ask a Librarian tab.

Can family members use the library?

Spouses may arrange to have library cards upon request. Please contact the library at
