Borrowing materials

The general collection is available for check-out for three weeks. DVDs/Videos circulate for seven days.  There is a limit of 10 items that may be checked out at one time.  Materials may be renewed one time.  Fines accumulate on a per day basis and after three notices fines and a per item charge will be added to your account.  If materials are not returned then replacement costs and processing fees will also be billed.

If you live in the area and would like to access to our materials, you need to fill out our user information sheet and pay a $30.00 annual fee. (By the way, the Temple Library is a good place to study and get away from it all for a while. Grab your laptop, use our internet access and have a cup of coffee while you study.)

  • A currently-registered John Wesley student
  • John Wesley faculty and staff (or immediate family – spouse and children)
