Equipment to Borrow

Trexler Library recognizes the complex and diverse needs of its patrons and is committed to acquiring the necessary materials to match those needs. The materials listed below are available to all current Muhlenberg students, faculty, and staff. They can be checked out from the Lending Services Desk on A-Level.
