Please come inside the library building to check out materials. If you are not authorized to enter a building on campus due to vaccination status and/or COVID test result please call 805-730-4044 when you arrive and we will meet you outside at the front entrance of the Library.

Be sure to bring a photo ID and wear a mask. Wristbands are required to enter the building (get one at a campus check-in table after showing proof of vaccination, or exemption, and a negative COVID test result).

Social distancing measures and safety precautions will be taken with library pickup and returns. For curbside pickup/return, you are not required to check in and get a wristband, but you must wear a mask.

Print Books

Print books from the library's regular collection (not textbooks) must be requested in advance. See the instructions for Requesting a Book in OneSearch.

Please note: print textbooks may be borrowed for 3 hours at a time when the Library is open. For temporary online access to chapters from a textbook, use the eReserve Request Form to submit your request.

Computer Equipment

Chromebooks and wifi hotspots are available on a first come, first served basis (see the notice at the top of the library homepage for current availability).
