Purchase a Library Card

Smith College affiliates including alumnae and spouses, partners and dependents of Smith employees may use their Smith OneCard to borrow materials. High school students and auditors enrolled in a Smith course, Learning in Retirement students, and Williams College patrons may stop by the Neilson Library service desk to obtain a Smith Library card.

Area Residents of Hampshire, Hampden and Franklin Counties, 18 years or older, may purchase limited borrowing privileges from the Smith College Libraries.

A purchased library card is valid for borrowing circulating items from Neilson Library and the Five College Library Annex only; items cannot be borrowed from Hillyer Art or Josten Performing Arts libraries. See "Area Residents" under Loan Periods for more information about what can be borrowed and for how long.

Onsite use of library materials and resources is available without purchasing a card at all Smith College Libraries including Hillyer and Josten.

Register for a library card in person at the Neilson Library service Desk.

  • Picture ID and additional proof of address (such as a piece of mail or a utility bill) are required for proof of residency.
  • Annual fee of $30 payable by cash of check can be made out to Smith College.
  • Card is valid for one year and may be renewed as long as the patron still resides in Hampshire, Hampden or Franklin Counties.
