According to Library staff members offered to get the most out of studying in the Library. Michelle Martinez, 25, an anthropology major, said she, “Takes advantage of the private room for reserve I’m easily distracted so the silence of the private rooms really help me study especially for finals and midterms.”

Students can check out a private room like they would a book, by going to the front desk and signing up with a two hour limit on the room.

If students forget their book or never bought one, the library has books on reserve. Eddie Jord, 21, a music major, said, “I haven’t bought my math book, it was too expensive, but I come to make copies of the homework.” According to Library employees, students can use book on reserve depending on the professor from two hours to overnight.

Students must present their LBCC ID card with a current semester sticker or picture ID and a copy of the course. Two Items can be checked out at one time. Late fees do apply with 10 cents an hour for in-house books and $2.40 a day for books checked out overnight.

Computers for printing and academic are available inside the library to students and research computers are located in the second floor of the building in E251.
