FAQs:

How do I place my book request? Click here for screenshots on finding & requesting a book.

How long can I keep my book? 4 weeks with 1 renewal, unless it comes from a special collection with a specific time limit.

How long can I keep my technology? Until the end of the semester! This program is designed to support you throughout the semester.

How do I return my library books? Use the regular outside book-drop bins. At Midlothian, it’s in the lower traffic circle between Hamel & Eliades Hall. At Chester, it’s next to Moyar Hall facing the largest student parking lot. Do not return bookstore rentals in the book-drop bin.

Why did I get an overdue notice when I already returned my book? All returns are quarantined for 1 week, so there will be a 1 week delay before you receive the e-mail confirming the book return.

I want to pick-up a Chester book at Midlothian. Can I do that?  Yes, but it will take at least a week to accommodate intercampus travel & mail quarantine times. If you need a book quickly, you may want to arrange a pick-up at the campus where the book lives.

What will happen if the library can’t find my book? We will keep your request active for 1 week in case the book shows up again. We may send you digital title suggestions if we cannot locate the book after 1 week.

Can I borrow a graphing calculator? Most of the library’s graphing calculators are reserved for students only in MTH 245. We have a very limited number of graphing calculators for students not in MTH 245.

I used to be a Tyler student but now I’m at a different college. Can I borrow a laptop? Need is too high among our students to extend this program to students not enrolled at JTCC.
