The SCC Library will provide a space for watching the first presidential debate on Monday, September 26, in the library instruction classroom behind the Research Help Desk, located on the 2nd floor of the Learning Resource Center.

The debate begins at 6:00 pm. A live stream of the debate will be shown using the classroom’s projector.

Students staff, faculty and administrators are all warmly invited.

The shelter greatly appreciates the following items:

  • Dry and canned cat and/or dog food
  • Cat litter
  • Collars and leashes
  • Medications
  • Cat & dog beds
  • Blankets & towels
  • Cat and dog toys

Thank you for your generosity!

Good news for busy students: the LRC will be open until 9:30 pm Monday – Thursday during the Fall 2015 semester.

Classes start Saturday! The library will be open its regular Saturday hours, 9 am – 3 pm. A few things to remember:

  • If you are looking for your textbook, the best way to see if we’ve got it is to fill out our online form. If we have a copy, it is most likely on 2-hour reserve. You need to grab the call number and bring it to the Circulation Desk. Ask a librarian if you need help.
  • You must have a Student Access (ID) Card in order to check out books. Don’t have one yet? On Saturday the 17th you can get one from 7 – 2:30 on the first floor of the LRC. You can also do it earlier in the week at City Café. For the full schedule, see the calendar (PDF file). To get your Access card and be eligible to check out books, you must be in at least one class (not just on a waiting list).
  • Be patient. Things can be very hectic early in the semester. We are really doing our best to help you get started with the semester, but sometimes there are delays, so try to keep a cool head!
