One of the benefits of Friends of the Library membership is the opportunity to check out books and media (excluding e-books) from the Harold B. Lee Library. Many who live in Utah Valley, and even some who live out of state but visit here frequently, use our resources.
Unfortunately our library, along with many others throughout the country, has been a victim of book theft. To combat this growing trend and to protect our collection for your use, we have implemented new procedures. New or renewing Friends who would like to check out library materials will now follow these steps:
- Complete a Donor/User Agreement Form (also available at the Library Circulation Desk)
- At the library, provide BOTH of the following:
- A government issued picture ID. Accepted: driver license, military ID, passport, or state ID card issued by the DMV
- Proof of permanent address. Accepted: recently postmarked piece of mail with the patron’s first and last name and address; preferably a utility bill or other recurring mailing; junk mail is not accepted
We know this could be a slight inconvenience to some and we apologize. We are doing all we can to ensure that a quality collection remains available to our students, faculty, and Friends of the Library.
Supplemental forms are required for 1) students enrolled at institutions that have “reciprocal borrowing” agreements with BYU and 2) high school students assigned to use the BYU Library. These forms are available at the Circulation Desk.
