How Books are Arranged in the Library: Borrowing Books

Checking Out a Book

Yes, it's true! You can borrow books for free!

You'd be surprised how many people think they have to rent books from the library.

In fact, as a student here, you can borrow books for 8 weeks at a time, and renew them once after that.

All you do is take the book you want to borrow to the Check-out desk on the first floor, show your Coyote ID card, and "check it out."

Your Library Card

Your Coyote OneCard is your library card.

To check out a book, you need to have your Coyote OneCard with you.

Take the book to the Check-out Desk on the first floor and show your Coyote OneCard.

They'll scan the book and your card, and you're done.

Happy reading!

Your Library Account

You may not know it, but you have a library account.

You got it automatically when you enrolled in CSUSB, and all the library's resources are available to you.

Use your library account to renew your library items, see a list of what you borrowed, check due dates, and pay fines with a credit card.
