General Rules

Cell Phones

Please turn your ringer to off or vibrate while in the library, and make or take your calls outside the library.



In order to maintain an atmosphere conducive to academic work, children are only permitted in the library for short visits, such as when an accompanying adult is returning a book. Children are not permitted for longer visits, such as when an accompanying adult is doing research, writing a paper or studying. For their own safety, children may not be left unattended in any area of the College, including the library. Campus security will be called and parents will be asked to accompany their children off campus under these circumstances. (Child Safety Procedures, Policies and Procedures section of the SCCC Student Handbook.)


Group Study Rooms, 1st Floor

Priority is given to groups, not individuals. Individuals may be asked by library staff to yield the space to a group. Reservations are not available. Neither groups nor individuals should plan on availability on demand, on a regular schedule, or for an unlimited time on any day.



First floor: Talking is allowed, but please be respectful and keep in mind that everyone is here to do academic work. Please still take cell phone calls outside the library. Second floor: Silent study only, please keep all talking to an absolute minimum and keep the space quiet.


Food and Drink

Only re-closable beverages and small wrapped snacks (energy bars, for example) are allowed on the Library’s 1st and 2nd floors. Please dispose of any trash and recycling properly.



Library computers close 15 minutes before the library closes. Patrons must log off of computers at this time. Patrons who do not comply with this policy will be asked to show ID, and will be reported to campus security. Failure to comply with this policy may also result in loss of computer privileges.
