If you live near a SUNY or NY community college library, take your Empire State College photo ID. That will allow you to borrow books from them. If you incur fines or fees, a hold will be placed on your student account here until you pay them.
Your public library may not have an adequate supply of academic quality research materials unless you live in a big city. However, they do have reference collections and many have interlibrary loan services. Also, many public libraries offer a regional borrowing card that will allow you to borrow from collections in local college libraries.
Nearby College Library
While they may not let you take out books, most college libraries allow members of the community to come in and use the books inside the building. Ask at the circulation desk and show them your Empire State College id; many let community members borrow under certain conditions.
