For the Community

Get a Library card

The staff of Trexler Library welcomes community members who would like to use our resources. There is no charge for this service and your library card entitles users to check out our materials for a three-week period.  Drop by the library or call us at 610.282.1100 x1266 for more information.

Access to library databases

Patrons who visit the library in person are welcome to use our online databases at no charge but due to licensing regulations, we cannot offer non-DeSales students, staff or faculty members off-campus access to our online resources.

Alumni and clergy

Alumni and clergy in the Allentown diocese may borrow without a yearly fee, but off-campus access to our online resources is restricted due to our licensing agreements.

Computer labs

Our computer labs are open and available to the public except when classes are scheduled in those facilities.  Stop by the circulation desk for our guest login.
