NEW HOURS -- Starting January 18, due to limited staffing, our new hours will be 9am - 2pm, Monday thru Thursday until further notice. Study rooms are available by reservation for individual use only.
We continue to offer remote services via chat, email, and phone.
Only items located in the Seattle Central College Library collection are available for request.
These items include:
Overdue fines are temporarily suspended. However, overdue items are subject to replacement cost fines. All items overdue 20 days or longer will result in a replacement cost fine.
The Library will send all notifications by email only to Seattle Colleges' email addresses. It is the patron's responsibility to monitor their college email. Replacement costs for all items are the cost to replace the item itself. The Library reserves the right to review this policy on a case-by-case basis. We understand each student's situation is different and the library will work with you to resolve any issues.
