How can I check out books? | Library cards

If you are affiliated with The University of Iowa, your student or staff card IS also your library card.
Show any of the following at the Hardin Library in order to check out materials:

  • Iowa One Card
  • UI Healthcare Badge
  • Dental School photo ID
  • Drivers license, State-Issued photo ID, Passport

If you are not affiliated with The University of Iowa, you still have options!  If you are a resident of the State of Iowa or an employee at the Iowa City VA Hospital, you may apply for a borrower’s permit.  Apply for a permit at the desk.  A state-issued photo ID, drivers license or passport is required.  Not all materials may be checked out with borrower’s permits.

Anyone can use Hardin Library’s materials within the library when the library is open.
