What students are asking about...

Can I check my textbook out from the library?

Generally, the SCC Library does NOT purchase textbooks. However, some instructors put copies of textbooks on reserve at the library where the book may be checked out for limited periods of time. Books may also be acquired from the campus bookstore. For more information or to check availability, follow the links below.


To check out any items from the library you need a photo ID.

How long can I keep…

Books: 28 days, one renewal*
Non-book items: (e.g., DVDs, CDs, etc.): 7 days, one renewal*
Reserve items: varies (usually 2 or 3 hours for in-library use only)

Are all the computers at the library being used by other students?  Need to work with your  group in a study room, but no one owns a laptop?  SCC Library offers the resources to help you succeed!  

Students can check out a laptop from the Check Out/Reserves Desk near the library's entrance.

  • Laptop check-out requires a Government Issued PHOTO ID (not an Artie Card) which we keep at the circulation desk for the duration of check-out.
  • ‚ÄčLaptops are for student use only and unfortunately cannot be checked out to community borrowers. 
  • Laptops may be checked out for 3 hours.
  • Laptops may be used anywhere inside the library.  They are not available to take outside of the building.
  • If using for a study room, be sure to also check out any additional supplies, such as monitor remotes, HDMI cables, white board markers, etc...    
  • Laptops are not linked to the SCC printers; so printing from the laptops is not available.
