Local Clergy

Local clergy (ministers, pastors, priests, rabbis, and others who are engaged in, or retired from, full-time ministry and hold a theological degree) are eligible for an Andover-Harvard Theological Library Access card, with which they can enter the library during open hours. The AHTL Access card has a one-time fee of $10, is valid for one year, and is renewable. Applications are available at the circulation desk, Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm (except University holidays). There is a $25 fee for replacing lost cards.

Local clergy may also be eligible for AHTL Special Borrower status. The fee for Special Borrower status is waived for local clergy, but all other Services for Special Borrowers apply. The library reserves the right to request verification of clergy status.  

Access and borrowing privileges are granted to a specific individual and may not be transferred or shared. The AHTL Access card must be presented to the circulation staff in order to borrow any materials.
