Alumnae and Alumni Library Services

Alumnae and Alumni are welcome to use some of the services of the Mills College Library after graduation. The first step is to obtain your Mills Alumna/us Card from the Office of Alumnae Relations at Reinhardt Alumnae House. Please contact the Alumnae House at 510.430.2123 or send an email.

Once you have an Alumna/us card, bring it to the Library so that we can get your current address, phone number and email and attach a library barcode. Please come Monday-Friday 9:00 am–noon and 1:00 pm–5:00 pm during the academic year. Hours vary during summer and holiday periods. Please phone the Circulation Supervisor at 510.430.2377 if you have questions. Once you are registered in the Library patron database, you are ready to check out materials!

Alumnae/i may borrow a total of 10 items at a time. The following limits apply:  

  • Books–10
  • Periodicals–5
  • Videos/DVDs–3
  • CDs–5

There are three computers available for Alumnae/i use (note: not family or friends); two can access the internet and one can access the library databases. Please be aware that access to the internet (the World Wide Web, email, etc) is available to alumnae/i who bring laptops and connect to the Mills wireless "Guest" network. The "Mills-Wireless" network is only available to current students, faculty and staff. Printing is not available, but personal flashdrives can be used to save files.

For other questions about library use, please contact the Reference Desk at 510.430.2385 or email us using the Ask a Reference Question form.
