Renew Items

You may renew items online through your library account. If you are unable to renew an item on your account, you've most likely encountered one of the following conditions:

  • The renewals have been exceeded for that particular item
  • Someone else has a hold on that item
  • The item is overdue

You may also renew items by contacting the library.

Return Materials

Return items to any of the following libraries regardless of where you picked them up.


Reserves are items chosen by instructors to have a restricted checkout, usually library-use only or 1 day. Since items either cannot leave the library or are gone for a shorter time, they are available to more students.

Services Available from Off-Campus

The library's electronic resources are available off-campus to students, faculty and staff using their library account. After students enroll, they automatically have access to the library catalog and databases. Students do not need a physical card to get access to the library off campus. To log in, their username is CGCC------- (the dashes are to be replaced with the student's ID number), and the passcode is the last four digits of their telephone number. Students who experience trouble logging in are advised to contact the library (ext. 6081) for a password reset. 

Students and staff who are not regularly on campus can request that materials be mailed directly to their homes. Contact us for mailing information.

Services Available at Hood River-Indian Creek Campus (HR-ICC)
