Winter Term Lending Library

Winter+Term+Lending+Library

Chemeketa’s Lending Library has textbooks to check-out for winter term. 

Requests are made online through the Library. Materials may be requested by logging in to your library account with your MyChemeketa username and password. Instructions for this process are available at https://libraryguides.chemeketa.edu/reserves/text_searching. You will be able to request items from the CL and PCY Collections.

Requested materials can be picked up at your selected location of Salem Campus, Yamhill Valley Campus, Polk Center, Woodburn Public Library, or the items can be mailed to you for an $8 fee.  Mailed items will be shipped to the address that you have on file with the College. If you need to change your address go to My.Chemeketa (you can review and update your address under Personal Information).  The address updates overnight in the College system, so you will need to wait until the next day for the Library system to update, in order to submit your hold request.

The bookstore will be offering free digital textbooks for many titles during the 2021-2022 school year.  Be sure to find out whether or not you need a textbook before placing your request.  Information is available at https://bookstore.chemeketa.edu/home.aspx.
