Food for Fines

Donate food and get rid of library fines!  Effective fall semester 2017, CCSF Library now accepts food for some fines.  Each donated item reduces your fine by $4.00.  Find out more about what qualifies for the Food for Fines program.



On July 18, CCSF joined LINK+ a network of libraries in California and Nevada that share books and library materials through an interlibrary loan program.  This means that students and the College community will be able to borrow materials from member libraries and have them delivered to any CCSF Library.

Using LINK+ is easy.  After searching CCSF Library's OneSearch, if you don’t find what you are looking for, click on the LINK+ button to repeat the search.  You can then place a hold on anything that you would like to order.  Materials typically arrive in 4-5 days.  Find out more at the CCSF Library website.

Try the 3rd floor Silent Zone. Need something in between those 2 scenarios? Try the 5th floor Whisper Zone. We hope you enjoy these new spaces and will be asking for more feedback later in the semester.
