Guest Borrower Program

Guests of the library who are at least 18 years old and wish to check out library materials may join the Guest Borrower Program. Join at the Miller Nichols Library First Floor Service Desk.

Those affiliated with MOBIUS and Courtesy Card institutions and Contributing Members of the Alumni Association already receive circulation privileges and do not need to join this program. Members of UMKC Friends of the Library contributing at least $50 annually also may receive borrowing privileges.
