ACL Reciprocal Borrowing Program

The Manuel Library is a member of ACL (the Association of Christian Librarians). This association includes a large number of libraries.

One benefit to the library’s membership is participation in the ACL Reciprocal Borrowing Program, which allows PIU students, faculty, and staff in-person borrowing privileges to the physical collections at any of the participating libraries in accord with their borrowing policies.

Though not an agreed-upon aspect of the Program, it is possible that these libraries would also allow in-person access to their digital resources as well.

For more information on the Program and for locating a participating library, go HERE.

If you would like to make use of this program, please contact us at or 336.714.7894. The library staff will need to fill out a portion of a form that you will then complete and take to the lending library you are wishing to use.  The process is quick and easy.


Our passion is to graduate men and women who are thoroughly equipped to be successful leaders who obey the Great Commandment, fulfill the Great Commission, and live abundant lives for the glory of God.
