Alumni & Community Borrowers

Visiting the Library

Alumni and community members are welcome to visit us during business hours to access many of our resources. Please bring a piece of photo I.D. to register for your Conestoga Library card. Please note current students and faculty take priority during peak service times.


Most library items can be borrowed. Please note that overdue items are subject to fines.

In compliance with our Fair Dealing Policy, Interlibrary Loan, Document Delivery and Course Readings services are only available to current Conestoga students, faculty and staff.

Online Resources

With the presentation of your Conestoga Library card/photo I.D., our team can sign you onto a computer workstation in the Library. Access to online resources should be for non-proprietary research purposes only.

Due to licensing restrictions, only current Conestoga students, faculty and staff are eligible for off-campus access to our eResources (e.g. eBooks, online articles).

Research Help

Ask any of our friendly staff at our Information & Research desk when assistance is required.


Contact the Library in person, by phone, email or chat service.
