Community Patron Policy
Community patrons (people who are not students, staff, faculty, or alumni of Prescott College) need to register for a library card at one of the public libraries in Yavapai County before being able to borrow items from Prescott College Library. Community patrons may place a hold on any Prescott College circulating title in the online catalog. The book will be sent from Prescott College to their "home" library and they will be notified of its arrival. They may also choose to pick up the book at the Prescott College Library. Community patrons may use one of the public computers for up to 30 minutes per day for accessing our catalog and general research. If they go over this, they will be given one warning. If they go over their limit again, they will lose their computer use privilege. Community patrons must also follow our ACCEPTABLE AND RESPONSIBLE USE POLICY. For community patrons wanting to do more extensive academic research, permission may be granted by one of the librarians on a case-by-case basis. Community patrons are allowed to use the library during normal hours up until 6 pm. After 6 pm, the library is only open for students, staff, faculty, or alumni of Prescott College.
