To check-out books without visiting the library:
Students enrolled in a distance learning course, not attending a class on campus, and living outside of Brunswick County, may borrow books from the Brunswick Community College Library once they have been issued a Distance Learning Library Card.
To select books for check-out, please visit our Library Catalog.
Once you have selected books to check-out from our library catalog, please contact the library staff at
(910) 755-7331 or (800) 754-1050 ext. 331 or send an email to email@example.com. We will then mail you the requested materials. You may request up to three (3) books at a time. The loan is for three (3) weeks. Ten additional working days will be added to allow time for the book(s) to be received and returned. The book(s) can be renewed one time as long as it has not been requested by another patron.
To return your library books without visiting the library, please use the same “Jiffy” mailing envelope and enclosed postage paid mailing label to return the book(s). Books must be returned promptly and in the same condition as they were loaned.
Borrowing Books from Other Libraries
If the BCC library is not able to fulfill your research needs it is possible to get material from other North Carolina Community College Libraries through Interlibrary loan. We can request books from most of the North Carolina Community College Libraries and Universities. This can be done by placing a hold using the library catalog or by asking one of the library staff to place a hold for you. ILL materials usually arrive in 3-5 business days and may be checked out for three weeks. However, it is important to note that you may not be able to renew books depending on the loaning college’s policy. In addition, some material requested may be loaned (New best sellers and some Audio books). Overdue ILL materials are $1.00 per day.
