Due to COVID-19, only active CCS students, staff and faculty have library access and checkout privileges at this time. This is a temporary measure, and we hope to reopen our space to alumni and community guest members again in the near future. 

Please note: During the COVID pandemic, access to the Library is restricted to current CCS members only.

Guests from outside of the CCS community are welcome to browse the Library’s collection. Guests may press the button on the intercom at the front of the Manoogian Visual Resource Center to be request access to the building. Guests do not have borrowing privileges, but are welcome to utilize print materials within the building. Guests are able to connect to CCS’s guest wifi with their own laptop, tablet, or smartphone devices. Guests do not have access to the computers housed in the Library.

Recalled Books

If you receive an email notification that a book you have checked out has been placed on hold by another patron, it must be returned within seven days. Fines will be $1/day for books not returned within that time frame.
