Non-resident students of Northern Michigan University may register for a Peter White Public Library Basic Access Card. The Basic Access Card allows the resident to use public access computers/Internet at the Library, utilize study rooms, use e-resources, and borrow materials. Only two (2) items may be checked out to a Basic Access Card at any
given time. In order to receive a Basic Access Card, the patron must be 18 years of age.
In order to register, a non-resident student must bring the verification of residence (lease agreement, utility bill, or piece of mail) and a valid NMU ID. The resident should also
bring a valid piece of identification (driver’s license or state ID) if one is available. The Basic Access Card will be valid for six months. Replacement of a lost Basic Access Card will be $2.00.
The non-resident student is responsible for following all Peter White Public Library policies and equipment use rules. The Basic Access Card is not transferable and cardholders should not loan their card to others. Failure to comply with these polices and rules may result in immediate revocation of the Basic Access Card.
A non-resident student who has a record of overdue fines, fees, or lost/damaged items at the Peter White Public Library will not be issued a Basic Access Card until the overdue fines, fees and lost/damaged items are paid in full.
To get your NMU basic card stop at the Circulation Desk on the Main Floor.

In a recent letter to the Friends of the Peter White Public Library the Board of Trustees expressed their gratitude for the volunteer group. The Friends of PWPL raised $38,403 last year. The money funded PWPL programs and collections and livestreaming equipment, to name a few.
The Friends of PWPL stock and manage the Used Bookstore, located on the main floor of the library, run the library book sales three times a year and sell special and rare books to fundraise for PWPL.
