Answer

Yes.  Kean alumni are eligible for borrowing privileges through the library.  

In order to access alumni benefits, you need a Kean University Alumni Card, an Alumni Photo ID Card, and an Alumni Barcode.

"You may also obtain your [Kean University Alumni] card by visiting the Alumni Relations Office located in 240 Surrey Road, Unit 17, Hillside, NJ 07205; or by calling the office at (908) 316-8930; or by emailing your request to alumni@keanfoundation.org.  Please be ready to provide your full name, name at graduation if different, class year, Student ID number, date of birth, and address for identification purposes. Your alumni card will be mailed to you.

Alumni who wish to borrow books from the Nancy Thompson Library will need to obtain an Alumni Photo ID Card, available at no cost from the Photo ID Office, located within the Office of Student Accounting on the Union campus, Administration Building, 3rd floor. You must bring your current alumni card along with one other form of photo identification (driver’s license, Kean student ID) to receive your Alumni Photo ID Card. Please call the Photo ID Office at (908) 737-3240 if you have any questions." 

Bring your Alumni Photo ID Card to the Circulation Desk and ask for an Alumni Barcode. The Circulation Desk is the first counter in the main library area adjacent to the front door.  If you have any questions, please call the Circulation Desk at (908) 737-4629.
