CHECKING OUT MATERIALS

Your student library card will also allow to check out three books when you visit your local library branch.  The library is fine free so there is no need to worry about charges as long as you return your material.  If you need help completing an assignment or finding a great book to read, library staff are here to help.

We would also love to see you at an upcoming program, check out our calendar to see what’s coming up.
