Borrowing Library Material

Drop by the Library to peruse our growing collection of new material for research or entertainment! Get your Library card at the Circulation desk with your photo ID in order to checkout material.

Renewals 

Circulating books may be renewed once if the patron's record is clear and no other patron is waiting for the material. Magazines, videos, and reserves may not be renewed. Some Interlibrary loans may be renewed, depending on policies of the lending institutions. Patrons may renew materials using the Library's Online Catalog, request renewals in person, or over the telephone.

Community & Courtesy Cards

The Shasta College Library is pleased to offer free library services to our community members. Just bring your California ID (or Simpson University ID if you are a current student there) to the Circulation Desk to receive a library card.

Community users may enjoy all the Library privileges granted Shasta College students, with the following exceptions: in-Library DVD checkout only, on-campus databases only, and no interlibrary loans (see the Shasta Public Libraries for ILL request).

Tehama, Trinity, Intermountain and HSUC:

Students can have materials sent to their Distance Campus.

Overdue Fines 

  • Fines are charged for overdue materials so the materials may be made available to other students and faculty. Fines begin accruing one day after the due date and continue, including weekends, holidays, and semester breaks, up to the maximum fine.
  • All overdue fines must be paid before more material can be checked out.
  • All materials can be returned on time via book drops located on the east and west sides of the Main Campus Library (building 200). They are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The book drops are checked daily for returned materials.

Lost or Damaged Materials 

The replacement cost as listed in the most current issue of Title Source 3 will be charged for lost or damaged materials. If the item is out of print, the average price for the current year will be charged. A $5.00 non-refundable processing fee will be charged. Magazine replacements cost $5.00 per title and paperbacks cost $1.00 per title.
