January 2021 Update: Due to the latest shelter-in-place order, library and media center checkouts and returns may be requested by appointment only. The Libraries will prioritize purchasing ebooks or scanning our physical collections before considering a physical checkout appointment. Requests will be fulfilled only when digitized versions are unavailable or insufficient. Please check https://libraries.cca.edu/‚Äč for latest updates.

 

Yes. Books, videos, and magazines may be placed on hold and picked up during scheduled pickup hours:

Meyer Library (Oakland): Wednesday, 11am-1pm

Simpson Library (San Francisco): Thursday, 11am-1pm

Holds may take up to a week to become available as staff availability and inter-office mail are limited. Once available, items will be held for 14 days. Complete instructions for placing and picking up holds may be found here: https://libraries.cca.edu/services/circulation-services/remote-services/contactless-library-checkout/
