Who is eligible?

All residents of Maricopa County who are 18 years old or more.

Getting a card

To issue a card the library requires 2 forms of ID with a current Maricopa County address:

  • Arizona Driver’s License / Picture ID
  • 1 other item with the same address, proving residency, such as a utility bill, check, voter registration card, auto registration or rent receipt.


  • If you do not have a local Driver’s License / Picture ID present 2 of the above other items. Both must have the same address.


The card is free of charge.

Where and when can I use the card?

  • The card is good at all Maricopa Community College District libraries during normal business hours.  Different rules apply at each college.
  • There is no expiration date.

What resources can I use? Can I check out books?

Books and Videos

The Community Borrower card entitles you to borrow up to five books and 3 non-books (e.g. DVDs, CDs) at one time. The loan period is four weeks with one renewal for books and one week with one renewal for non-books. You may not check out reserve or circulation desk material. You will not be able to use interlibrary loan services.

Magazines and Journals

As with GCC users, printed magazines and journals must be used in the library.

Electronic access to magazines and journals may be obtained by using one of the public access computer terminals located near the west entrance; however, no printing is available from these stations.

Computers/Internet Access

Use of the computers in the Computer Commons area is restricted to those who have an activated MEID account through enrollment in a course at GCC. The MEID account presents students with an integrated suite of productivity tools and a wide range of network resources, such as Word, Excel, Power Point, and internet access.

There are computers for quick look up of the catalog and databases at the west end of the library near the Information Desk. These are available for anyone; however, printing of documents cannot be done from these stations.
