Lending Policy — Visitor

The library will grant borrowing privileges to off-campus persons for an annual nonrefundable fifty dollar ($50.00) registration fee.  Registration fees are payable by check or credit card only.


Each applicant must complete Visitor registration. Each applicant must be at least 18 years of age and provide proof of identity (valid California driver license, California ID, or an official photo ID showing current residence address (no PO Box allowed)). A photocopy of the applicant's ID will be kept on file.


The Cal Poly Pomona Library issued card along with a driver license or an official photo ID are required when completing any type of library transaction. (e.g. CHECKOUT, RENEWAL or PAY FEES).


A total of 10 books may be borrowed for 30 days. Book(s) can be renewed in online through My Library Account, NOT BY PHONE. One or more book(s) overdue, will keep you in delinquent status and no further transactions will be allowed until overdue status is cleared. Visitors DO NOT have Special Materials or Items privileges, including Reserve books, Periodicals, Reference, Document Delivery or CSU+, media checkout, remote database, e-book, or e-journal access. For more detailed information, see the circulation staff.


The replacement fee is refundable if the book is returned in good condition and within one-year of payment date.


Overdue fees will be charged: $.15 cents per book per day per book (maximum $10.00). Fees for lost or unreturned overdue books will be charged per CSU fee schedule; i.e. replacement fee of book and accrued overdue fee(s).


Failure to return overdue books and/or pay fees will result in temporary loss of borrowing privileges. Repeated or serious infringements will result in permanent loss of borrowing privileges, as well as notify a collection agency.


In an attempt to limit unauthorized use of library materials, library personnel will record the name and identification number of anyone attempting to leave the library without properly checking out materials. Public guests who are repeat offenders will be forwarded to the Cal Poly Pomona Police Department.
