LLCC ID/Library Cards now obtained in Bookstore

As of July 11, LLCC IDs have moved from the LLCC Library to Campus Services and are located inside the LLCC Bookstore. Students, faculty and staff who need IDs should now come to the bookstore for this service. Although the ID machine will no longer be located in the Library, student and staff IDs will still function as library cards.

“Food For Fines” at LLCC Library

Do you have an overdue library book? Don’t forget, the LLCC Library is accepting “Food for Fines” until the end of the semester (this Friday).

Food for Fines is a fundraiser drive allowing patrons (students, faculty, staff, or community members) to “pay off” any fines or fees on their account by bringing in donations for a local food pantry. Patrons can bring in one non-perishable item to receive $5.00 off their total fines. For instance, if you owe $20 in processing fees and bring in 4 donation items, your account balance will go down to zero. Please note that donations cannot be used to pay for lost books. We have teamed up with the Central Illinois Foodbank to donate everything we collect. View a list of items that the Central IL Food Bank is in need of.  Feel free to contact Mary DiMaggio if you need any more information. Thank you!

Edible Book Festival today!

Be sure to stop by the Edible Book Festival to check out the entries on display and vote between 11 a.m.-noon for your favorite!  We’ll announce the winners at noon, then eat!  All are invited to taste the books.
