Alumni and Community Users

Lycoming College is a private, independent liberal arts college. As a special service to the community, the College permits in-library use of most print library materials, photocopy machines, and limited borrowing privileges. Due to the small size of our staff, it is not always possible to provide reference and instructional assistance to members of the community.

If your library needs fall outside Snowden Library's policies or community users' hours, please visit James V. Brown Library, located just one block away on East 4th Street.


  • Alumni and community users may apply in person to borrow materials at Snowden Library. There is a 2-day waiting period for new registrations. There is no registration fee.
  • Alumni and community users must be 18 years of age, live in Lycoming County, and show one form of identification when applying for borrowing privileges.
  • If not a county resident, the applicant must be associated as a student, faculty, or staff member with an institution that is part of SLC, ACLCP, or The Commonwealth Medical College.
