Library Borrowing

Who Can Borrow?

Current Cañada College (or SMCCCD) students, faculty, or staff, automatically have a free college library account that can be used to borrow materials and access collections at the college libraries. You don't need a physical card beyond your College ID and/or your G number in order to borrow materials.

Other San Mateo County residents or Cañada College community members are also eligible for a library account that permits borrowing. Visit our library account info page to learn more.
