Visiting Patron Program
Many institutions that are members of Link+ participate in its Visiting Patron program.
This program lets you, as a patron from a Link+ library, use your library card in person at another Link+ library. You check out library items through Link+ and borrow them for the same time period as a Link+ loan.
Patrons of other Link+ libraries that participate in the program may use their cards at the King Library and SJPL branch libraries, but we encourage them to obtain and use a Library Card.
Note: When visiting another library that participates in the program, please have both your library card and ID present at the time of checkout.
