Borrowing Materials


Library materials circulate to students enrolled in the current semester and to college employees.

For students, books in our General Collection may be checked out for a month, and most textbooks on reserve can be borrowed for two hours at a time.* The Library also loans laptops, tablets, DVDs, and CDs. More detailed information about our circulation policies can be found on our Policies page.

*During the pandemic, loan periods for textbooks have been extended to four days


All students must present a valid ID card to borrow library materials. LAVC ID cards can be obtained from the College's Admissions Office.

The Library does not issue individual LAVC ID cards to students.

Current Employees

College employees must complete a LAVC Library Card Application and show a valid LACCD employee ID card and a photo ID in order to obtain a library card.
