Renewing Library Materials

  • Library materials (with the exception of Videos and DVDs) can be renewed online via the library catalog under My Account or by contacting the Circulation Desk at 760-245-4271, ext. 2262. Renewals must be made on or before the item's due date. A maximum of two renewals are allowed unless another patron has placed a hold on an item. Individuals are responsible for all materials checked out under their name.
  • All questions about previously checked out materials or current fines can be answered by contacting the Circulation Desk.
  • The library will send a notice as a reminder of overdue materials. Patrons will be billed for the cost of replacing any item or items, plus a processing fee for all unreturned materials. Processing fees and fines are nonrefundable. Transcripts, grades, and registration clearance will be held until your status with the library is cleared.
  • Changes in addresses or telephone numbers must be reported to the library. A claim of failure to receive an overdue notice will not prevent an individual from being billed for fines and lost materials.

Lost Items

  • The library will send a notice as a reminder of overdue materials. Patrons will be billed for the cost of replacing any item or items, plus a $5.00 processing fee per item for all unreturned materials. Processing fees and fines are nonrefundable. Transcripts, grades, and registration clearance will be held until your status with the library is cleared.
  • Changes in addresses or telephone numbers must be reported to the library. A claim of failure to receive an overdue notice will not prevent an individual from being billed for fines and lost materials.
VVC students who are registered with the library may apply for an IEALC (Inland Empire Academic Libraries Cooperative) card at the circulation desk. The purpose of the card is to provide students borrowing privileges from other member libraries for special research needs that extend beyond the resources of the VVC collection. The card is available only to students; faculty and staff are not included in the agreement. Students are solely responsible for all borrowed materials and must abide by the local lending rules of each library. Contact the Circulation Desk (245-4271, ex.2262) for further information.
