Can I apply for a library card at other libraries in Amherst?

Normally, yes, but not during the pandemic. During normal times, all three of the large academic libraries in Amherst allow unaffiliated local residents to apply for a library card and borrow items at no cost. Residents of Massachusetts are eligible to apply for a card at the UMass Du Bois Library. "Adult residents of Hampshire County or one of the four immediately adjacent counties" are eligible to apply for a card at Amherst College’s Frost Library. "Area residents" are eligible to apply for a card at Hampshire College’s Harold F. Johnson Library.
