  • Student ID card with photo issued by any LACCD College. (Student ID cards can be acquired at Copy Tech.)
  • Student ID card with photo from other higher education institutions. 
  • Government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver’s license, California ID, passport). 
  • High school ID card with photo.

Information about loan periods, renewals, returns, holds and fines can be found here.

Placing Holds on Books
