The services of Kalamazoo Valley’s two convenient libraries are designed to support and enrich teaching and learning. Print, electronic, and audiovisual materials are all available, and the professional staff is eager to help you identify and access the resources you need. Librarian assistance, research databases, electronic books, and the online catalog are available 24 hours a day via the Libraries’ website, http://www.kvcc.edu/library.

Together, the Texas Township Campus and Arcadia Commons Campus Libraries offer more than 80 online research databases with access to several million journal articles; more than 170,000 books, of which over 110,000 are e-books; over 5,000 audiovisual materials; and, 170-plus periodicals.

Access and Borrowing: A current active Kalamazoo Valley ID card is required to borrow materials from the Libraries. Students may check out books for three weeks and renew them up to two times. Periodicals, reference books, 2-hour course reserves, and audiovisual materials may be used in-house only. Library materials are delivered between the two campus libraries every weekday. You are responsible for all items checked out with your ID card. There is no charge for library material returned by the due date. A fine and/or replacement fee is charged for late or lost items.

Other Services: The KVCC Libraries offer interlibrary loan services. As well, professional librarians are available to assist you, and both Libraries offer computers, printers, scanners, and coin-operated copy machines for student use. Text-enlargers are available for those with low vision, and both locations are wheelchair-accessible. The Texas Township Library also offers group study rooms, group and individual audiovisual viewing locations, drafting tables, and a color printer.
