Community Patron Circulation Policies

Community Patron Circulation Policies

Community patrons include residents of Trevecca Towers. Waggoner Library is a private, academic library and does not provide the services or resources of a public library. For example, we do not have federal or state tax forms or a fiction collection. Waggoner Library reserves the right to deny or revoke privileges to community patrons for any reason, but in particular for disruptive behavior, inappropriate use of library resources, or excessive late returns or loss of materials.

Library Card
  • To obtain an application for a library card, visit the Circulation Desk on the main level.

    • A valid picture ID with Trevecca Towers address.
