No Library Book Returns until further notice during our COVID-19 Closure!

Due to the closure of all Palomar College Library locations during the COVID-19 emergency all users should hold on to materials they’ve loaned.  Once our buildings reopen no late fees will be charged for returned items!

Loan renewal notices will be issued for all items with a new due date of December 19, 2020.

Palomar Library Services remain available through access to ebooks and databases and research assistance through ‘Chat with a Librarian‘ and our Library Zoom Room!

We congratulate our Spring and Summer graduates and look forward to seeing you at the Virtual Commencement Ceremony on June 19th.
