Because students are not yet permitted in the Library building, we will provide a curbside pickup service to make books and other library materials available. This service is also available to faculty and staff. Books must be from the BC3 Library's collection and noted as being “Available” in the BC3 Library Catalog. To use this service, complete the Curbside Pickup form.
We will contact you to schedule a pickup date and time. Pickup times will be between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday. At this time, curbside pickup is only available at the Main Campus location. The pickup location is the driveway between the Succop Theater and the Business and Allied Health Building. See map and directions.
