Alumni library privileges include the ability to borrow
books, and access articles from Roosevelt libraries.
The alumni card also serves as a library card. Alumni can obtain a card by calling the Alumni Office at (312) 341-3624. Alumni Office hours are from 9-5, Monday- Friday. Once you have your alumni card, bring it to a library circulation desk, and we will attach a new barcode to the card. Alumni accounts must be renewed every three months.
Alumni may check out an unlimited number of books from Roosevelt's circulation collection. You will need an Alumni Card, which will serve as your new library card.
Only 5 books may be borrowed from the Performing Arts Library at one time.
Alumni may check out books for 4 weeks and renew them twice for a total borrowing time of three months.
Alumni may request that RU books be delivered to the Roosevelt campus of your choice.
