Reserve materials are items your professor has placed on reserve in the library for your use. These items are usually required, supplemental reading materials or items set aside for your research assignments. Reserve materials should be requested at the Circulation Desk. Reserve materials have varying circulation periods depending on the professor's request. Some reserves can only be used in the library. You will be notified of the policies for your reserve item at check-out.
The library does not purchase course textbooks. You are encouraged to purchase your own textbooks.
Whenever the LBC Library does not have a book or a periodical article that a student needs, we will attempt to obtain that item from another library. Books can be borrowed for a specific loan period, but photocopies of periodical articles are yours to keep. There is usually no charge for this service. Requests are submitted electronically, but the materials are sent by mail. Please allow up to two weeks for the materials to arrive. To learn how to submit interlibrary loan requests electronically, please see Mrs. Holly Lessey.
Students and community patrons have the opportunity for three renewal periods. The renewal can be made via the Internet, over the phone, email, or in person.
At the Circulation Desk, located on the right when you first walk into the library.
To return books that have been checked out to you, there is an outside and an internal drop-off box, or you may hand them to the front desk attendant.
Periodicals (journals and magazines) as well as reference books are non-circulating and must be used in the library.
