Library Card Reimbursement Policy
Saint Leo University students attending the Columbus AFB Center may utilize area public, academic, and base libraries to supplement Saint Leo resources.These libraries will require a borrowing card in order for you to check out materials. You should obtain borrowing cards at both a public library and an academic library.
With the purpose of ensuring that every student has book-borrowing privileges, Saint Leo University will reimburse every off-campus student for one library card from a university in their area (not to exceed $150). Students need to save their receipt, fill out the library reimbursement form and contact their Education Center about how to get reimbursed.
Local public libraries in Mississippi provide both free borrowing privileges to local residents and free online database access via the Mississippi Alliance for Gaining New Opportunities through Library Information Access (MAGNOLIA). Be sure to request a MAGNOLIA login and password when you register for a borrowing card or the next time you visit your public library.
