Faculty/Staff and Students

Your TC3 Card is your library card. Full and part-time students can obtain their photo ID cards in the TC3 Card Office in Room 101. 

Community Members

We welcome area residents. You can obtain a Community Borrower card by completing an application and providing proof of identification to library staff. If you are completing the application form off campus, we will contact you to verify your identification. Once confirmed, your card will be mailed to you and you will be able to borrow books and DVDs.

Course Reserves

Course reserves, primarily textbooks used for classes, are kept at the Service Desk. 

  • Reserve items may be used for up to 2 hours in the library. Fines for late Reserve materials are 25 cents an hour, per item.
  • Students may request that chapters be scanned and sent by email.  These files expire two hours after they are opened.  More information about digitization requests.


Students and staff may borrow books for the entire semester.


DVDs not reserved for class use can be borrowed for up to three weeks.  


Students and staff will be reminded of their due dates in their TC3 email.

Overdue Items

We do not charge overdue fines for regular books or DVDs.  However, you will be placed on the Library Stoplist if you fail to return materials you have borrowed. You will be sent an invoice charging you a nonrefundable $15.00 lost item processing fee for each item that you do not return.

You can be cleared from the Stoplist once you have returned what you've borrowed or once you've paid the lost item processing fees.  It can take up to forty-eight hours to be cleared from the Stoplist. 

See all your options to return books and DVDs.


Paper magazines, journals, and newspapers must be used in the library.
