The LLCC Library has established a reciprocal borrowing agreement with Lincoln Library, the public library of Springfield. LLCC students, staff and faculty who live outside of Lincoln Library’s district will now have access to Lincoln Library’s circulating materials free of charge as non-resident reciprocal members.
To obtain a reciprocal library card, LLCC students and employees will have to present an LLCC ID and a signed Confirmation of Good Standing form at the Lincoln Library. The Confirmation of Good Standing form is available at the LLCC circulation desk, and our circulation staff can help with this. The Lincoln Library reciprocal card will be active for one year and is renewable for those eligible. LLCC students, staff and faculty who already live within Lincoln Library’s district will be granted a regular public library card.
LLCC students and employees will not have access to Lincoln Library’s off-site electronic resources or to interlibrary loan privileges. Also, the reciprocal agreement does not extend to family members of LLCC students or employees.
If you are interested in becoming a reciprocal member of Lincoln Library, stop by the LLCC Library to find out more and pick up your Confirmation of Good Standing form.
April 9-13 is National Library Week, and the LLCC Library is kicking off its Food for Fines fundraiser drive, which continues through the end of the semester. Food for Fines allows patrons (students, faculty, staff or community members) to “pay off” any fines or fees on their account by bringing in donations for the LLCC Food Pantry. Patrons can bring in one non-perishable item to receive $5 off their total fines. For instance, if you owe $20 in processing fees and bring in four donation items, your account balance will go down to zero. Please note that donations cannot be used to pay for lost books. View a list of items that the LLCC Food Pantry is in need of. Feel free to contact Tavis Lawson or Scott Ebbing if you need any more information. Thank you!

The Food for Fines Program in the Library is ending next week! If you have any Lost Item Processing Fees be sure to bring in a few of the recommended items (found here) to knock off $5 of fees per item.
This program is a great and inexpensive way to get rid of pesky fees on your account, but also a fantastic way to help others in the LLCC Community.
If you have any questions about what fines you might have, or any question about the program in general, call or email Scott Ebbing (786-2358 / Scott.Ebbing@llcc.edu) or Tavis Lawson (786-2270 / Tavis.Lawson@llcc.edu).
