Providing Change for Library Patrons

The Library provides change to facilitate the use of Library equipment and services between the hours of 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday only.

The Michael Schwartz Library provides change in the following ways:

  • Change machine located on the first floor of the Library.
    • The machine provides change for $1.00, 5.00, $10.00, and $20.00 bills. The first dollar is changed into dimes with all others given in quarters.
    • The bill changer is checked regularly for necessary refilling.
  • Photocopy machines provide change when an amount larger than the photocopy cost is inserted.

The User Services Desk, at its discretion, may provide change when:

  • The dollar-bill changer is out of order.
  • Patrons require bills as change for a $5.00, $10.00, or $20.00 bill.

Change will not be provided for any bill larger than a $20 bill.

Patrons having $1.00 bills will be directed to the change machine located on the first floor of the Library.
