A Cypress College photo ID or library card is required for all transactions. You can pick up a student ID on the first floor of the Student Complex. Staff and faculty library cards are on file in the library for all employees of Cypress College.
There are some limitations on what resources are accessible to non-Cypress College students. Community users may wish to purchase a library card for $12 per year and that allows community users to check out books from the main collection and items from our DVD collection.
A community user library card however does not provide access to group study rooms, reserve materials, textbooks, the campus WiFi, library computers, and/or library databases. You must be a currently enrolled Cypress College student to gain access to any of these resources.
