While CUNY Libraries are closed, regular loan books will be renewed automatically. You can check your account by logging into My Account with your CUNY ID (link is under the OneSearch search field) but there is no need to renew books on your own. Contact Us if you see that a loan has not been automatically renewed, or if you have a question about an email you receive regarding your loans. Overdue and recall fines are eliminated for most items.
Like many of us, Hunter College Libraries went through some changes last year. We experienced transitions in library leadership, an international pandemic, and the dramatic introduction of new ways of working. We stuck together through it all and developed new ways of organizing ourselves and our work. We drew on leadership across the libraries through expanded definitions of department membership and committee structures. We grew together as an organization in ways that we could not anticipate.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we can acknowledge Hunter College as the first public, tuition-free college for women in America. Founded in 1870 by Thomas Hunter as a Normal College, its mission was to train teachers. Hunter College was known for high entry requirements; it did not exclude applicants based on race, religion, or ethnicity. Take a look at some of the digitized archival material available on the website.
