If you live near a Summit Library you can get a Summit Visiting Patron card and use that to request books so you can pick up and drop off at that library. To set up a Visiting Patron account you need to go to the Circulation Desk at one of the Summit Libraries and tell them you are an EOU student and would like to set up a Summit Visiting Patron Account. Then you will use that account to request items.
