Because students cannot browse the library shelves, we ask that you contact library staff to fetch a book for you, then you can visit the library to pick up. "To-go" check-out process:
SCC Library, Building 16, West/Greene Street Entrance
All technology (laptops & hotspots) that were checked out for fall 2020 is now overdue. Please call 509-533-8255 to schedule a time to return your laptop to avoid lost item replacement fees of up to $1500, registration blocks, security/police reports, and possible SCC student conduct disciplinary action.
Equipment (Laptops/Hotspots) check out is available in the SCC Library Monday - Friday, 7:15am-2:00pm on a first come first serve basis. If you are currently enrolled in classes at SCC and have questions regarding laptop and/or hotspot checkouts, please contact CircDesk.SCC@scc.spokane.edu or call 509-533-8255 for more information.
