About the Learning Commons Library
The library at Sauk Valley College offers resources and services to students and employees of the College, as well as residents of the SVCC College District, for education, information and enjoyment.
College Students and Employees
All current students and employees have a library account. Accounts are active during academic terms, and may be extended between terms at the request of the individual. Students and employees may borrow books, magazines and journals, and videos from the library; request items through interlibrary loan; and access online resources such as eBooks and research databases from off-campus.
All residents of the Sauk Valley Community College District who are at least 16 years old and who hold a valid driver’s license or other state-issued I.D. are eligible for a free library card. Cards may be renewed on an annual basis pending proof of continued residence. Community patrons may borrow books, magazines and journals, and videos from the library. All SVCC library card holders are welcome to participate in the eRead Illinois eBook program.

Most physical items may be borrowed for 4 weeks at a time, and may be renewed up to 3 times as long as no other patron has requested the item.

Lost item charges will be removed when the items are returned in good condition. Items may be renewed by telephone, by email, or in person. Students and staff may renew online after logging in to their Library OneSearch accounts. Any tem that is returned in a condition that is not fit for further use must be paid for by the borrower.
