Library Cards

Library materials circulate to LACC students enrolled in the current semester and to college employees.  The Library does not issue individual cards to students.  All students are expected to present the LACC Cub ID card or an official current Registration Receipt plus one other current form of picture identification to obtain library materials.  (Ask library employee which IDs are acceptable.)  LACC Cub ID card can be obtained from the Administration Building, Room 105, with a current Registration Receipt plus any picture identification.

ITV students may check out textbooks for 2 hours (use in Library) with either a current California ID, current California driver’s license, or a current passport.  ITV students cannot check out other library materials unless they are also enrolled at LACC in the current semester/session.

College employees must complete an MLK Library Card Application and show a valid LACC Cub Card ID for Faculty or Staff in order to obtain a library card.
