Students must have a KVCC ID card to borrow materials including AV and reserve items.  ID cards are issued at the student service centers on Texas Township and Arcadia Commons campuses.

Delivery Between Libraries

We have a daily delivery between the Texas Township and Arcadia Commons Campus Libraries. Ask at the circulation desk if you need materials from the library on the other campus.

View Your Library Account / Renew

To see what you have checked out and to renew materials, log into your ValleyCat OneSearch account. You may also renew in person at the circulation desk or by phoning the circulation department. Books and AV items will also auto-renew a maximum of 4 times per item.

Overdue and Lost Materials | Fine & Fee Schedule for Student Borrowing

Returning materials on time is your responsibility. As a courtesy, we will send an e-mail notice to your KVCC e-mail address if you have overdue or lost materials. Books and AV items will auto-renew unless a Hold has been placed on the item, in which case we request that you return the item to the Library. Please be sure to check your KVCC e-mail frequently so any library notices will reach you.

A replacement fee is charged for any lost materials. Books are charged actual cost. AV and Reserve items are charged actual cost. Lost items also result in a hold being placed on your college account, blocking transcripts and grades, and blocking your library checkout privileges.
