Trexler Library exists to meet the needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Muhlenberg College.
For current Muhlenberg students, faculty, and staff members, your Muhlenberg ID card is your library card and is what you need to check out library materials. Non-current students, faculty, and/or staff members may sign up for a library card and their privileges will depend on their connection to the College. Those wishing to sign up for a Trexler Library card must have a valid photo ID, an email address, and a phone number. Anyone under the age of 17 looking to acquire a library card must have a parent/guardian present. Alumni who want to acquire a library card must be verified as in good standing with the College and will have a waiting period of several business days. Please note, a library card granted to a non-current-Muhlenberg does NOT include access to our computers. Campus visitors may access the guest WiFi network if they bring their own devices.
