To check out a book, bring it to the Circulation Desk. You will need to be currently registered and will be asked to present picture ID, such as your university ID card or driver's license.

How Long
The borrowing period is 5 weeks for regularly circulating items. Reserve items may be checked out for 2 hours or 1 week depending on the item.

Request a Book
If the book you want is checked out, you can ensure that you will be next in line to get it. Requesting a book will also prevent the person with the book from renewing it. You can request books from all three locations: Pleasant Hill, San Jose and Berkeley. You can place a hold using your account within the library catalog. You will be notified when the book is available for you.
