Community Borrowers

Members of our community are welcome to use the Library and its resources with the understanding that our academic context by necessity privileges service to our students first and foremost. Our collections are developed specifically to support student learning, and we strive to maintain an environment conducive to that emphasis. Community members are expected to abide by the Library's and MCCCD's policies and to anticipate that our hours of operation revolve around (and vary according to) semester-based class scheduling.
