Alumni & Community Services

The UNH Manchester Library’s resources and collections are primarily designed to support the curriculum of the University. As an institution partially funded with state dollars, the library provides selected services to the general public which include on-premise use of information resources and limited use of computers. Certain library and informational resources and services are generally not available to visitors. These include, but are not limited to, Document Delivery, Interlibrary Loan, off-premise use of library materials, remote access to many online library databases, and use of computing labs.

Obtaining a library card:

Alumni
If you graduated from UNH, UNH Manchester, DCE, CLL, Granite State College, Keene State College, Plymouth State University, or Merrimack Valley College, you are entitled to a free UNH borrowing card. You will need to bring a photo ID and proof of your current residence (such as a license or bill) to the Circulation Desk. We will verify your graduation.

Manchester Residents
If you live or work in Manchester, you are eligible for a UNH Manchester Library community card. With this card, you may borrow books, films, and other materials located at the UNH Manchester Library.
To obtain a card, simply stop by the library with a valid driver's license and proof of residency or employment.

All services to the local community, including access, may be denied if the librarian on duty determines that there is any interference with the library's primary clientele.
