Library Policies

The Berkeley City College Library provides a quiet space for research and study, as well as materials for classroom assignments and personal interest. You can help the library maintain their services for all of its users by following these common library guidelines:


Please do not bring food, drinks, animals (except aids to disabled persons) into the library.

MAINTAIN QUIET so that others in the area may work undisturbed.

Please refrain from telephone and personal conversations.

CHECK OUT ALL MATERIALS that you take from library on your student ID card.

Missing or damaged materials are frustrating for the next person who needs to use them. Remember that you are responsible for all materials checked out on your card; do not lend your student ID to another.
