The library provides print books, audiobooks, and videos to members of the college and to residents of Richmond and Scotland counties.

County residents may borrow two (2) items at a time, one of which may be a video or audiobook.
Books and audiobooks may be borrowed for three (3) weeks, while videos may only be borrowed for seven (7) days. Books may be renewed for another three (3) weeks as long as another person is not waiting on it. Videos may not be renewed.
Print books are located on the second level of the library; new books and audiobooks are located on the first level. Graphic novels are located in the Lounge area upstairs. Young Adult fiction and Children's books are located upstairs on the South end of the library. Videos are shelved downstairs.
Learn more about each collection:
The reference collection is located on the second level across from the staircase. These books cannot be borrowed. Users may copy reference books as long as they follow the U.S. copyright laws. The copier is located on the first floor of the library. Copies are $0.10 cents per page for black and white copies, and $0.20 cents per page for color copies.
The RichmondCC Library may request to borrow print books and/or journal articles from other libraries if an item is not owned by RichmondCC. The amount of time a user may borrow an item from another library is determined by the lending library, not the RichmondCC Library. Complete this form and a library staff member will attempt to get the item for you. It may take between two (2) to three (3) weeks for items to be available for your use.
Library patrons may place a hold on print books. Patrons can pick up their holds in either the library in Richmond County or the Learning Resource Center in the Morgan Building in Scotland County. Please use this form to place a hold. Library staff will be in touch when the book is ready for you to pick up.
First time borrowers must complete a membership form before leaving the premise with items. Students and employees of RichmondCC must have a current ID card issued by the college to borrow materials. Community users living in Scotland and Richmond county may obtain a library card as long as they verify their address. Community users are only allowed to borrow two (2) items at a time, and must use their local public library if in need of an item the RichmondCC Library does not own.
Items returned late accrue $0.25 cents a day per item. Each item's late fee caps out at ten ($10) dollars. You may pay late fees by cash or check in the library. Credit or debt card payment may only be completed by the Business Office. Please contact a library staff member if you need to pay your fees using a card.
