|Expanded Item Pickup Service - Participating Institutions|
|Many institutions that are members of LINK+ participate in its Visiting Patron program. This program allows a patron from a participating LINK+ library to use his/her library card in person at another participating LINK+ library. Items are checked out through LINK+ and are borrowed for the same time period as a LINK+ request.
When visiting another library that participates in Visiting Patron, please have your library card and ID present at the time of checkout.
