English: Get a Library Card

Welcome to the English Research Guide

What About Cards?

Your Lyon College ID is your library card!  When you first arrive at Lyon, be sure to get your ID and away you go to the library!

If you are not a student, staff, or faculty member, bring one of these acceptable forms of ID to the Circulation desk:

Photo identification such as your Arkansas driver’s license or a  government-issued photo ID,  military ID, or passport.

Library costs are below:

  • Individual $25
  • Alumnae  FREE!

Feel Like Driving?


Because of a mutual sharing agreement, Lyon College students can borrow books at other College and University libraries in this state.  Browse ArkLink's Libraries to see if there's something you can use within driving distance.  Pick up a library card at our front desk before you go.  You cannot login to their article databases from off-campus but most have a guest policy allowing you to search their databases in-house.
