Guest Access Policy

A library visitor or community member is anyone who does not have a valid Temple University photo ID card. Temple University alumni are eligible to obtain a special alumni access card.

If you do not have a valid Temple University photo ID card, you must present a valid photo ID card and sign in to the security guard’s logbook in order to gain entrance.

You cannot enter the library after 10:00pm on any day in which the library remains open past this time. The library hours are listed on the calendar on the library website.

If you are an invited guest for a special event, such as an exhibit opening or reception, the library will notify the security guards ahead of time to make the necessary arrangements to allow entrance. You may still be asked to show a photo ID and sign in to the security guard’s logbook.

We require all library visitors, community members and alumni to follow our Community Standards.
