State College-Easier Library Use

Local News

Renting from the library in State College just got a little easier.

You can rent a book, dvd, magazine or other item from the Schlow Centre Region Library with a Penn State Library card.

This also goes for a Schlow Library card at a Penn State library.

The Schlow Centre Region library has been working with Penn State libraries for two years. trying to find ways to make renting easier for students and for other library users.
Lisa Rives Collens is Head of Patron Services with Schlow Library.
She says the partnership started with giving people the option to pick up an item at Schlow Library and return it at any of the Penn State libraries on campus, or vice versa.
“It seemed like the next step for us was to be able to use the resident cards that Penn State provides and this is a copy of their brand new resident card.  We’re really excited that we can now use the Penn State resident cards.”
You can also use the Schlow library card at any of the libraries on the Penn State campus.
Plus, you don’t need you’re physical card, as long as you have your smart phone.

“We also wanted to make sure, we have a library card app, which allows you to carry your Schlow Library card on your phone and we wanted to make sure that the Penn State card would work in there as well and it does,” Rives Collens said.
The Schlow Centre Region library and Penn State libraries are meeting on a regular basis to try to find more ways to make using the library easier for students and others in Centre county.
