MPC Library will be open this Fall for limited hours and operate under county health guidelines and campus reopening guidelines. MPC Library will continue to provide learning support services online through its website (www.mpc.edu/library).
Welcome MPC Students to Fall 2021!
Textbooks: MPC students can borrow certain 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.
Chromebooks and Hotspots are available for student checkout. Currently enrolled MPC students can email email@example.com or call (831) 646-4095 to check availability. Students may reserve an available Chromebook and Hotspot by filling out the online agreement forms:

Go to the “Online Library Help” page to find ways to connect with library staff including submitting a question or making an online one-on-one appointment with a librarian.
To check out a textbook, Chromebook, 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 Library Circulation Desk. 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.
