Books can be checked out for 28 days and are renewable once. There is no limit on the number of items a patron can check out at one time. An SKCTC library card is required to check out materials. Renewals will be for the same period as the original checkout and take effect from the due date of the original checkout, rather than from the date of renewal.
A/V's can be checked out for three days and are renewable once. Patrons under the age of 17 must have parental consent to view or checkout audio/visual materials with an MPAA rating of "R".

Students will be charged 10 per day per item to a maximum of $10.00 (Reserve items have a maximum fine of $20.00). A hold will be placed on the student records (transcripts, etc.) of any student who owes the library $10.00 or more in fines and fees. Patrons who owe a fine or fee of any amount shall not be allowed to check out additional materials until the fine or fee has been paid.
Lost or Damaged Materials
Replacement charges for items lost or damaged while checked out to a patron will be assessed in the amount of $30 or the actual replacement cost of the item, whichever is greater, plus a $10 processing fee. Late charges will not be assessed whenever these replacement charges are paid.
The SKCTC student ID card also serves as a library card. You do not need a new ID each semester, however, a new decal is required. If you lose your ID card, you must pay $10.00 at the SKCTC Business Office, obtain a receipt, and present the receipt to the library. You will then be issued a new student ID.
