MPC Library will be closed until further notice because of Monterey County’s Shelter-in-Place order. MPC Library is providing learning support services online through its website (www.mpc.edu/library).
Textbooks: MPC students can still borrow textbooks. Check to see if the books you need are available by using the library’s OneSearch feature to search Course Reserves. Make sure we have more than one copy available as we do not check out the last copy (though we may be able to scan a chapter or so as long as it falls within copyright law).
Books: MPC students can also reserve books from our main collection (non textbooks) using OneSearch and the "Request" option, and pick them up during the days/times below. If a request was made through OneSearch, an email will be sent to you when your item(s) are ready for pick up.
Calculators: The MPC Library has a limited supply of graphing calculators for students to borrow. Call in advance to check availability before coming: (831) 646-4095.
The MPC Library is pleased to announce a new Chromebook loan program for students. Currently enrolled MPC students can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (831) 646-4095 to check availability and reserve an available Chromebook. Borrowers must agree to the online terms.

To check out a textbook, laptop, or other physical item, MPC students need to activate their library account by filling out an MPC Library Borrower Registration Application. Then, pick up the library card at the Sam Karas Room location (see open hours). Once activated, students may use their student id or number when their card is unavailable. Students are responsible for all items borrowed in their account and can log in to their library account to view it.
