Open to students, faculty, staff and the community
No college is complete without a library. At Montco, both Central and West campuses have fully stocked libraries for students, faculty, staff and the community.
Along with traditional, printed materials, we have a robust online library with outstanding digital offerings available to current students and College employees, including:
- ebooks as well as digital editions of popular magazines on Flipster;
- over 40 academic research databases, and online journals;
- streaming video collections;
- online chat;
- web-based tutorials, appointment scheduling, item requests and book renewals.
We also provide a peaceful place to study and do research. Central's Brendlinger Library has a designated quiet floor where you can work at tables, desks or computer stations without distractions. Should you want to study with friends, you can reserve a group study room.
Borrowing from the library
From books and laptops to course reserves and headphones, the libraries allow current students, faculty and staff to borrow materials for specific time-periods. Alumni and County residents have limited borrowing privileges.
Books & Bytes Café
If you grow tired or hungry during your library time, grab a coffee, sandwich, salad or soup from Books and Bytes. Located within the library, the café operates from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on weekdays.
You'll need to present a current Montco or photo ID to borrow materials from the library...
