You are able to check books out (and pick them up) Monday-Thursday, 8am-8pm. How?
Once you have the titles of the books you would like to request, call Circulation at (661) 395-4461 OR send your request to a librarian via the library chat (the "Ask Us! tab on the Library home page). Someone from Circulation will call you to arrange a pick-up day and time when your request has been completed.
At the assigned time, pull up to the curb in front of the Library, call Circulation at (661) 395-4461 to let them know you have arrived. Your books will be delivered right to you! Be sure to have photo ID (and a mask).
To return books: drive to the Drop Box in the turn-around-loop between the Library and Administration buildings.
General Collection books may be checked out for 3 weeks, while Reserve books may be checked out for 2 days.
Search for books and ebook using OneSearch. You will find a "OneSearch" button in the center of the library webpage, or linked in the OneSearch image below. OneSearch allows you to search EVERYTHING the library has access to, including print books and eBooks, plus journal articles and more from our databases. Click on the OneSearch image below to access this resource (right click to open in a new tab).
When you click on the OneSearch button, it will take you to a Search Anything search bar. When you start typing your search, you will see some drop-down options for the kind of search you want to do. Choose the third option, BC Library Books & eBooks, if you'd like to focus your search on books.
For the best results, sign in with your BC ID at the top right corner.
