Students, community members, and employees of Lower Columbia College are eligible to receive a library card.

LCC Library cards can only be used at the LCC Library. Other libraries have their own cards.

Your Library card should be presented to check out materials. You are responsible for materials checked out on your library account. Please notify the library if your card has been lost or stolen, or if you change your address or telephone number.

Library cards are updated annually, but only after all fines and overdue materials have been cleared.
