- To provide library services and well organized, accessible collections in various formats consistent with the needs of the instructional programs.
- To provide access to educational technology and instruction in its use.
- To provide a learning environment for users in which they can be free to explore interests at a learning pace tailored to individual needs.

ID cards are issued in the Union Station Building Business Office on the Wilmington Campus and in the McKeithan Center Business Office on the North Campus. To get an ID , you will need a current schedule and photo identification (ie. driver’s license, passport, military ID).
Community patrons must be 18 years of age or older; they will also need to provide a picture I.D. and two documents verifying their current address and residency status in New Hanover or Pender Counties. Visit the Community Patron webpage for further information.
Patrons with overdue materials or fines and charges may be restricted from checking out additional Library materials and, in some cases, may face other campus restrictions.
