The Circulation Desk, located by the entrance on the 1st floor, is where books are checked out, returned, and renewed. To check out material from the Brooklyn College Library, you need your validated college ID card. However, you also need to activate your barcode before you can charge out material or access your patron information in the CUNY+ catalog. Your barcode must be activated at the Circulation Desk.
