Becoming a Member

Virtual Library website for the Michener LRC


You don’t have to be a student, faculty, or staff at Michener to be a member of the LRC. Just follow these steps to join:


  1. Email the LRC at our email address to set up an in-person meeting during business hours, Monday to Friday.
  2. During the meeting, the individual seeking membership will also meet the Finance department to submit an annual $50.00 membership fee. Finance will give the individual a receipt as proof of payment.
  3. Once proof of payment is shown, the individual will fill out a membership form and be given an LRC membership card.

Please present this membership card to check out items.

Note: LRC members CANNOT drop in to the LRC unannounced – per Michener’s policy, members must email the Manager at to set up a time when they can come to Michener

Borrowing Privileges

Books and journals may be borrowed for 2 weeks. Exceptions:

  • Short term loan books may be used within the LRC only.  They can be found behind the checkout station.

Up to three renewals are possible, unless another borrower has requested the item. Renew items by email
