The SCC library will remain largely virtual this fall, but we are opening the Giles/Central, Cherokee County, and Downtown Campus Libraries under limited hours to serve the needs of SCC students, faculty, and staff.

Library Hours

  • Books and DVDs to check out
  • Student computers, wi-fi, and printing
  • Limited equipment - copier, scanner, etc.

  • Research and general assistance via our Ask-a-librarian email service
  • Electronic databases, e-books, and streaming videos
  • Library Research Guides for various assignments and subject areas

Need to return Library materials? If you have items to return, you may use the outdoor book drop, next to the front door of the LIB building on the Giles/Central Campus. There is also an indoor drop box in the library at Tyger River Campus. Or simply bring the items to any location during our opening hours.

In order to preserve the health and safety of our students and staff, the SCC Library will be operating under recommended guidelines for social distancing and cleanliness. Please note that the library will be adhering to the following procedures:

  • Masks are required while using the library. If you do not have a mask, please ask library staff about how to get one.

  • Please use only the computers without the yellow signs and maintain a distance of six feet or more from other students and staff.
  • The printer at the Giles/Central Campus Library is now located at the Circulation Desk. After sending print jobs to the printer, please see Library staff to release your copies from the print queue.
