New York Public Library branch libraries, Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Library have reciprocal agreements which allow full borrowing privileges, including reserves and renewals, among the three library systems. For example, with your non-transferrable NYPL branch library card, you can borrow books and other items from the Brooklyn Public and the Queens Libraries.
You must pick up the items from a library in the system that owns the materials and return borrowed items to any branch of the library system from which it was borrowed. For example, you must return items borrowed from a Brooklyn Public Library to any other Brooklyn Public Library branch; you may not return these items to an NYPL or Queens Library branch. Registration for reciprocal use may also be required.
