How do I get a Library Card?

Your library card allows you to access your NECC Library Account to request books and other items, renew items, and pay fines and fees. You will also be prompted to enter your library card number and password when accessing the library's electronic resources (like databases) from off-campus.

Returning students that have an older Student ID card can choose to receive a physical library card or have a new library card barcode sticker placed on the back of your Student ID. Returning students can also visit the Welcome Express Desk in the Behrakis One Stop Student Center, 100 Elliot Street in Haverhill or the Welcome Express Desk in the El-Hefni Allied Health and Technology Center on 414 Common Street in Lawrence to receive a new Student ID with the library card number or use the following information:

Your library card number is 203850 + your 8-digit student ID Number.

(For instance, if your Student ID number is 00223344, your library card number is: 20385000223344)

Your password is your 8-digit birthday.

(For instance, if your birthday is April 15, 1996, your password is: 04151996)

If this information does not work, contact the library. NECC ID numbers expire once you stop taking classes, or after a set period of time if you are not a student. To re-activate your library barcode number, contact the library.
