From books and videos, to laptops and hotspots, our libraries have information resources and technology you need to succeed in your classes. Learn to "Check it out!"
Library facilities and services are open to all students, faculty, staff and community users free of charge. Spokane Community College (SCC) and Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) students, faculty or staff may check out library materials with a valid college identification card. Guests or community users may check out library materials with a guest library card.
When you apply for a college ID card or guest library card, you must show a current copy of one of these documents:
All library materials are checked out at the circulation desk. Renewals may be requested for items online, in person or by phone by calling SCC at 509-533-8255 or SFCC at 509-533-3805. You must provide your student ID or guest library card number when calling for renewal.
If a library book is checked out, a “Hold” can be placed on it. We will notify you when the book is available for checkout.
Sorry, but no holds or reservations can be placed on library technology that circulates, including laptops, internet hotspots, and cameras.
