Picking Up Requested Library Materials from ARC

If you have requested materials from the ARC Library, you will receive an email confirmation when they are ready for you. Please wait until you receive an email confirming your items are ready for pickup before coming to campus. Due to campus staff limitations this can take up to three business days. 

Returning Library Materials

All Chromebooks, graphing calculators, hotspots, textbooks, or other library books can be returned on campus. For more information on returns, please visit the FAQ page.

Our interest is in reducing financial or institutional barriers for students with library materials checked out during the closure:

  • Due dates have currently been extended until May 19.
  • These due dates may be extended again if the college remains closed.
  • If the due date is extended again, you will receive another email informing you of the new due date
  • Fines and fees accrued during this time will be waived.
  • No library registration holds will be placed on PeopleSoft accounts.
