Guests from outside of the CCS community are welcome to browse the Library’s collection. You may request access to the building via the intercom at the front of the Manoogian Visual Resource Center. Guests do not have borrowing privileges, but are welcome to utilize print materials within the building.

You can connect to CCS’s guest wifi on your personal devices or use the Library’s computers for a three-hour period per day. See the Computer & Printing Information tab (under “About Us”) for more information.

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 7 days. Fines will be $1/day for books not returned within that time frame.
