Return all books and materials to the proper Book Return. The inside Book Return is located at the left end of the Circulation Desk. An outside Book Drop is available near the library entrance. Only use the outside book drop when the Library is closed.
Students need to use the Library Catalog to request books that will be delivered to the EDC campus library, free of charge, from any of the Los Rios Community College Libraries. Students may ask for help to place a "Hold" on any Los Rios District library book that is already checked out. NO "Hold" privileges are available for Reserve materials. There is approximately a three-day waiting period for books to arrive. Students may request up to 7 circulating books at one time.
Wireless Internet connection is available for enrolled students in the Library for personal computer use. However, the Library computers are available for Research purposes only.
Circulating Books may be checked out for 3 weeks. Circulating Videos may be checked out for one week. All materials must be returned by the end of each semester. Reserve materials may have checkout periods of 2 hours, overnight, 3 days, or one week. Materials checked out for 2 hours are for in-library use only. The number of items you are limited to checkout are: 7 circulating books, 2 reserve books and 2 videos.
Library material that is lost will have a current replacement cost PLUS a $10.00 NON-REFUNDABLE processing fee. Replacement cost for out-of-print material is at least $40.00 PLUS a $10.00 NON-REFUNDABLE processing fee. Students have thirty (30) days to return the book for a refund minus the non-refundable processing fee.
Overdue fines continue to accrue during the hours and days that the library is closed. Non-payment of fines or failure to return materials will result in a BLOCK on the student's records in Admissions. Fines are paid at Student Services. Blocks are cleared when the student brings a paid receipt back to the Library Circulation Desk.
