Want to check out books from other local libraries?
If you live in Waukesha (even on campus) you can get a card from the Waukesha Public Library. Please take a look at their policies for more information.
Many research libraries allow patrons to purchase a library card for checking out materials (Carroll does this with our Community Borrower card). Here are a few that make this privilege available:
- UW-Milwaukee: Friends of the Golda Meir Library membership
- $50 for individuals for 12 months.
- Receive invitations to all Friends and Library-sponsored programs, events, and lectures.
- Borrow books, CDs, DVDs.
- On-site use of Libraries resources.

- Upon arrival at the library, faculty will be required to present institution and photo ID. Access Services staff will confirm faculty status and issue the faculty member a guest logon and password that permits access to electronic resources. This access does not include check out privileges. If you are interested in limited borrowing privledges, please contact Marquette about their Annual Visitor Pass.
- Anyone can enter the libraries and use materials on site.
- Carroll faculty members may check out materials by applying for a Courtesy Card.
- The Courtesy Card application must be filled out online and approved prior to visiting.
