Q. How do I check out books from the library?

Instructions on checking out print books from any of the campus libraries.


Loan Policies: Regular Circulating Materials to Students 

  • To check out material from the JSCC libraries, students must be currently enrolled.  The student accepts responsibility for any material borrowed from the libraries.
  • A student may not have more than seven books on a subject checked out at any one time.  If the books are on more than one subject, the student may have more than seven, up to a maximum of twenty-one at any one time. 
  • Regular circulating materials may be borrowed for 21 days. 
  • All regular circulating materials may be renewed one time. 
  • Books may be borrowed and returned at any campus regardless of a student’s primary campus location. 
  • Overdue notices are emailed weekly to student email accounts.  
  • The final due date for each semester is determined term by term but generally will fall on the last day of final exams.


  • The overdue fine for regular circulating materials is 10 cents per day per item with no maximum.  Audio visual materials and software accrue overdue fines at a rate of $1.00 per day with no maximum. 
  • A student with overdue books cannot check out additional materials without approval until those books are returned or paid for if they are lost or damaged.
  • Banner holds are placed on student accounts for items not returned.  Holds are placed periodically throughout each term and not removed until items are returned or replacement fees are paid. 
  • Individuals must pay replacement cost plus processing fee for any books which have been lost or damaged.  In addition, students must pay any fines which have accumulated.  
  • All library fines and lost book charges are to be paid to the college cashier.  A fine slip is completed in the library when the overdue material is returned.  The student must present this slip in to the cashier when paying fines.  If a Banner hold is present, the cashier will remove the hold once the fine or replacement fees are paid.
  • All refunds for returned books, which have been lost and paid, are handled through the business office.  The student is responsible for returning the materials to the library and requesting a refund.  The student must have the cashier's receipt as proof of payment.  Library staff will complete the required paperwork for submittal by the student to the business office.
