You must show a current CCS ID in order to check out library materials. The library’s online catalog is accessible on the Internet here. Access to the online catalog, as well as to the Library’s electronic databases, is also available here, where students can search for books, periodicals, and materials placed on reserve by instructors. From the catalog’s main menu you can access your patron record to see what books and DVDs you have checked out, what their due dates are, and if you have overdue books.

Fines for overdue books are 20 cents per book per day. Other materials have varying fines; please check at the circulation desk. All lost or unreturned items will be charged the replacement cost plus a $30.00 processing fee. Accounts must be paid in full in order to receive grades and transcripts.

Cell phone use is prohibited in the library! Please turn ringers on vibrate when entering the library. If you should receive a call while in the library, please take it out into the lobby.
