How to Borrow Library Items

Use an SRJC ID card to check out library items.

A photo ID ($5.00) is available at the Bertolini Student Affairs desk in Santa Rosa or at the Petaluma Cybear Center, Call Building, Room 608, in Petaluma. Non-photo IDs are available free of charge.

Non-photo IDs are also available at the Mahoney Library Circulation Desk in Petaluma when the Cybear Center is closed and at Doyle Library Circulation or Reserve Desks for evening/weekend students only.

Students need to obtain only one ID for use during their student career and have it validated each semester. Obtain validation stickers at the public service desks in Doyle and Mahoney Libraries.

NOTE: If a student uses a non-photo ID, some form of valid government-issued photo ID (driver's license, DMV ID Card, passport, etc.) must also be shown.
