Library Tutorial: Borrow & Renew

What do I need to know about borrowing books?

  • Bring your Pellissippi ID to check out library items and use reserve materials.
  • Check out as many books as you'd like for two weeks at a time.   
  • Renew your books in person, online, or by calling the Circulation Desk.
  • Though there are no fines for overdue books, after a month overdue, you will be charged the replacement cost and a processing fee.

Your Library Account

From your library account, you can view due dates, request items, and renew books online. Access your account either in OneSearch or from the libraries' homepage.
