Library Policies

Tcartoon library cardhe Martin ID serves as a library card for Martin students, faculty and staff.  It is used  to check out materials and to access other library services.  If you do not know your library barcode number (different from your ID on your class schedule), library staff can look it up for you.  Citizens of Martin, Washingon, and Bertie counties not affiliated with the college who are at least 16 years old may obtain a library card. A photo ID showing an address in one of the three counties is required to obtain a library card.
