Checkout Desk

Welc​ome!

The Checkout Desk staff located on the second
floor in Park Libraries welcomes you! This is where material is checked out, renewed, and returned.
In order to check out material as a student or faculty/staff, a valid CMU ID card is required.  ​
Guest Borrower cards are issued to members of
the community who wish to use  the collection.​


What materials are available to checkout?

From headphones and study rooms, to laptops and chargers, we've got so much more than just books! Take a look at our Technology for Checkout page for more information.
