Our materials (physical and electronic collections) are available to anyone for use in the library. However, borrowing privileges for visitors are limited in order to ensure that W&M faculty, staff, and students have the resources they need.
Residents of Williamsburg, James City County or York County receive free visitor library cards to Swem Library.
Visitors are responsible for:
- returning all materials by the due date
- reading and responding to all library notices
- notifying us if your card is lost or stolen
- paying all fines and fees for overdue or unreturned items
- notifying us of any changes in your contact information
