  1. Bring your materials to the circulation desk. Staff will check them out for you.
  2. Use Self-Service Checkout machines.
  3. Download the cloudLibrary app and scan the Library barcode on your materials.

What if the Library doesn't have what you're looking for? You can

How Long Can I Keep It?

You can keep most library items for 3 weeks. You can only keep tools, laptops, and test prep books for 1 week.


You do not need to renew your items. If no one else has placed a hold on them, we will renew your times automatically up to three times.


You can return all OPL materials to any OPL branch - except tools and laptops.

  • You must return tools to the Tool Lending Library.
  • You must return laptops to the same branch where you borrowed them.
