Books and DVDs

A library card! To get your new library card you must bring a photo ID that displays your current address (valid driver's license or state-issued non-driver's ID), and your student identification number.

If you are a registered student, you may have eight books checked out at any given time. The check-out period is three weeks. You may renew books ONCE for another three weeks.

You may have 2 DVDs out at a time. You can keep them for one week. No renewals.

Please place books you wish to return in the book drop in the circulation desk. If you wish to drop materials off after hours, please place them in the book drop on the exterior of the Learning Resources Center building. This drop is located to the right of the front doors.

If you feel an item is on your account in error, please complete a Claims Returned form.

We will help you reset your password. You must know your user ID and have a personal email or cell phone number on file with the college.

Printer Usage

We have two printers that are available for student use in the library.

Just hitting File and Print will NOT be enough. Look at your station number on your monitor frame. The label will also tell you which of the two printers has your document. Look at the poster on the wall and follow the instructions to tell the printer to print your document.

You do not have to pay for printouts at this time. Do NOT print out multiple copies. All printouts will use both sides of the paper.

The printers also serve as scanners and photocopiers. You will need to log in with your KCTCS user ID and password. Follow the instructions on the yellow sheets.
