Summit visiting patron program

  • PCC borrowers can visit other Summit libraries to check out materials and place requests on Summit items.
  • At the other institution, users must log into their PCC Library account to verify their current active status.
  • Once “adopted” by the other library, PCC borrowers can begin using the other library’s materials.
  • Patrons from other Summit institutions can also be adopted at PCC Library. Once “adopted”, they may begin checking out PCC-owned materials.
  • Materials can be picked up at all Orbis-Cascade Alliance member institution libraries.
