Items may be renewed up to 2 times beyond the original checkout period, unless another patron has placed a hold on a given item.

The CCC Library reserves the right to recall items at any time and for any reason.

If a long overdue book goes into “lost” status, the patron is required to pay for the replacement of the item.  Replacement cost will be applied to students’ CCC account.

Renew Items

You may renew items online through your library account.  (To access your library account please inquire at the Circulation desk.)  If you are unable to renew one or more items on your account, you’ve most likely encountered one of the following conditions:

  • The renewals have been exceeded for that particular item
  • Someone else has a hold on that item
  • The item is overdue

User Responsibility, Damaged and Non-Returned Items

Please return materials on time and in good condition.  Users will be billed for the actual cost of damaged and non-returned materials, plus a processing fee of $25.00 per item.  NOTE: this replacement cost can potentially be much greater than the original purchase price if the item is out of print.

Also, please note the following policies:

  • If you bring children to the library they must be supervised at all times.
  • No college facility or equipment may be used for commercial purposes.
  • Students, patrons and the general public must abide by the rules set forth in the Clatsop Community College Student Code of Conduct.
