Checkouts, Renewals, Holds, Reference, and Reserves

A patron must have a WWCC Libraries Account issued by WWCC Libraries staff in order to borrow items. Fees for late or lost items may cause an account to be blocked leaving the patron subject to losing borrowing privileges until the patron clears up the issue by visiting or contacting the WWCC Libraries staff.
