Resources for Alumni & Guests

The Cheng Library welcomes WP Alumni and Community Users to visit the Library and use the collections. Alumni who present a valid WP Alumni Card (call 973-720-2175 or email for more information) may borrow up to 30 items for 28 days (books). See Lending Services for more information.

Community members who are at least 18 years of age, may borrow materials with a valid public library card from the following towns: Bloomingdale, Caldwell, Cedar Grove, Clifton, Fairfield, Haledon, Little Falls, North Haledon, Orange, Passaic, Paterson, Pompton Lakes, Ringwood, Totowa, Wanaque, Wayne, West Milford, or Woodland Park - and a second form of identification. You may borrow up to 3 items at a time.

Use of Cheng Library Computers

Computers are primarily for the use of currently enrolled students, WP faculty and staff. During busy times, WP users have priority over Alumni and Community Users.

To use Library computers, Alumni and Community Users can obtain a Guest Account login at the Reference Desk by providing valid identification. This account is of limited duration and for use only in the Library. It does not include email, wireless access, off-campus access, or any other specialized privileges. Users agree to abide by the University's Appropriate Use Policy.


Alumni and Community Users who wish to print will be required to pay for each page they print in Cheng Library. Guest account users must purchase a Pioneer Express campus guest card at the vending machine in the Friends Room.  There is an initial charge for the card and users may add value as needed.  Printing charges will be debited against the card’s value.
