Hi, you can create Windows 10 recovery USB without administrator rights.

First of all, I will offer you the easiest way - to use the professional tool EaseUS Todo Backup Home.

EaseUS Todo Backup Home allows users to quickly create a Windows 10 Recovery USB for Windows 10/8/7. You just need to download the software on a library computer and complete the process with your prepared USB.

The specific steps are as follows:

Step 1. Insert the USB into your computer and download EaseUS Todo Backup Home.

Step 2. Launch the software, and navigate to Tools> Create Emergency Disk.

Step 3. Select a boot disk location, and you can choose the Create button.

In addition to using EaseUS Todo Backup Home, you can also go to Microsoft's website and download the Windows 10 ISO file yourself and try to create the recovery USB yourself by following the procedure given on the website. However, you will have trouble with the process as you do not have administrative access to your library computer.

You need to format the USB to NTFS after downloading the ISO file and then change the boot mode from LEGACY + UEFI to UEFI. the whole creation process will be very difficult, so I would recommend you choose the first method.
