During the current coronavirus event, many services and resources are still available.
At this time, we have reached our limit of laptops and hotspots available for borrowing.
Although the library and computer lab are closed, you can request that library staff print for you then drive by the Spokane campus library to pick-up your prints.
Fill out this print request and schedule the time/day you plan to pick-up.
Any requests submitted after 8am will be available the following day for pickup. (Monday - Thursday, 10am - 2pm)
Until the campus is reopened, library books are not available for loan. If you don't yet have your textbook here are our suggestions:
A. Contact your instructor immediately. Lots of students are in need to textbooks, so your instructor may have some remedy to help all students in the class.
B. Feel free to email or phone Karen Waite, library circulation supervisor, at 509-533-8255 to ask her advice.
As per Governor Inslee's Stay-At-Home order, the library will be closed until the order is lifted; that includes physical items such as books and videos. Due to library closures around the country, we are unable to process physical ILLs (inter-library loans) but will continue to obtain digital ILLs.
While the library is closed, books cannot be loaned. If you need a book from the library, contact a librarian via 24/7 chat; librarians may be able to find an information source which you can use instead
Library circulation staff have extended the loan periods for all borrowed items as described below. If you have questions, email or phone circulation supervisor Karen Waite at the SCC Library: 509-533-8255.
Library staff will contact you to remind you to return items
After the first week that the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order is lifted, library staff will send an email reminder or phone each individual who has borrowed an item to remind you to return.
Whether or not you are returning for Spring quarter, hold onto the equipment until the first week after the Governor lifts the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order. During that week, we will expect equipment to be returned.
If you no longer need the hotspot, please return it through the blue drop-box in front of building 16. If you are taking credit classes during Spring quarter, hold onto equipment until Stay home, Stay Healthy order is lifted.
If you borrowed items from the SCC campus library, you may return them by placing them in the blue, book-drop box which is located next to the west entrance of Building 15.
Several businesses and community support programs are offering ways to get free internet during this time.
Some are listed here, but this isn't an exhaustive list. If you need more assistance, send an email to the SCC Library Reference Desk. A Librarian will respond soon.
SCC/SFCC students can access the Spokane Public Library's digital resources. If you and your family are spending extended time at home, you may want to take advantage of SPL's extensive collection of popular ebooks, audiobooks, streaming films & television shows, online magazines, and even comics.
Contact an SCC librarian if you have questions about how to get your automatically approved library barcode.
