About Your Library Card

Why Do I Need a Library Card?

To check out books, DVDs, textbooks, and more from the Mendocino College Library.

Your library card is also your student ID which you can use to ride Mendocino County Transit for free!

Where Do I Get a Library Card?

In most cases, the first day you become a registered student, you can come to the library and get a Student ID card which is also your library card.

What Happens If I Lose My Card?

You can get a replacement card at the Circulation Desk for $5. You just need to be a registered student.

What Happens If I Am No Longer a Student at Mendocino College?

You are welcome to visit the library, log in to the computers with a guest pass, and read books, magazines, and newspapers in the library.

Once you re-enroll, your card is activated again.

The Mendocino College Library also has the "Friends of the Mendocino College Library" community users’ library card. Please just ask for a brochure on membership. It is typically $25.00 a year to join for a full year.

What Does It Mean To "Check Out" a Library Book?

Checking out a book means you borrow it to take home and read.

Most books you can check out for 3 weeks.

Other books you may only check out for 2 hours. These are called "Reserve Books."

How Many Books, DVDs, Music CDs, or Audiobooks Can I Check Out at One Time?

A total of 10 books per check-out. A maximum of 5 DVDs or 5 Audiobooks can be checked out at any one time.

Are There Items That I Cannot Check Out?

Yes. Reference Books, newspapers, and magazines do not get checked out. You are welcome to read them here in the library!

What If Mendocino College Library Doesn't Have the Book I Want?

Have you tried searching Mendocino County Library's catalog? 

https://son.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/mendocino/?dt=list

You can also request the book through "Interlibrary Loan" using this form:

https://mclib.mendocino.edu/interlibrary-loan

Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.

Can I Renew an Item and For How Long?

Most items can be renewed for an additional 3 weeks unless someone else has put a "Hold" on that item or if that item is already overdue.

Where Can I Return Library Books?
  • At the Mendocino College Library Circulation Desk.
  • In the "Library Return" book slot at the front of the Learning Resource Center/Library Building.
