Spring Arbor University participates in the Michigan eLibrary Visiting Patron program. If your home library also participates, you can bring your home library card to SAU to check out material for free from the White Library. Check to see if your home library participates in the Visiting Patron program.
The computer lab on the main floor of the library has several computers available for public use. Printing is not available on these computers. However, users may send print requests via email to the library Circulation Desk. See more info on printing, scanning, and faxing in the library.
