As a Purchase College student or employee, you are eligible for a Westchester Library System card. A WLS card allows you to borrow materials and access electronic resources (including Lynda.com and Mango Languages) from any public library in Westchester County.

To obtain a card, you apply online through Harrison Public Library: http://www.harrisonpl.org/get-a-library-card

If you have any issues with the online application process, please email us and we will contact the Purchase Free Library for backup.

Both libraries are in the Town of Harrison and both serve our community as crucial partners. During this COVID crisis, you may apply for a WLS card through Harrison or Purchase Free Library if your hometown library is closed.  Anyone with a purchase.edu email address is welcome to apply!

  1. Hello! I've obtained a Westchester library system card. How do I renew it when it expires? do I have to go through the whole process again?

  2. To renew a WLS card, please visit your local Westchester Library branch in person or call the Circulation Department. If you signed up here on campus via Harrison Public Library, you would go to 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison NY or call 914-835-0324.

    You can apply online for a new card (https://www.harrisonpl.org/get-a-library-card#card-apply-head) but please call Harrison Public Library to see if you can also use the online form to renew an existing card.
