Free Borrowing

The Library will check out books, videos, and other materials to any valid CWI user who presents identification. Most materials check out for four weeks, though reserve materials check out for shorter periods. Feel free to contact the Library to renew materials if you need them longer than planned.

Materials on Request

If the Library doesn’t have a book, article, or other needed item, we will either purchase it or obtain a copy through our interlibrary loan network at no cost. Just ask!

Books by Mail

If you can't get to the Library we can mail library materials to you. Learn how in this step-by-step PDF on requesting and mailing library materials.

Computers & Printing

The Library offers a number of computers with Microsoft Office and Internet connectivity for use by CWI users that may be accessed using a campus login. We also provide free black & white printing and photocopying. Wireless internet is available in the Library for laptop users.
