Magnolia Library offers online student support

The Magnolia Library has moved completely online to help students continue their assignments using the online databases and other electronic resources offered through the Library's website.

The library can be reached by email and chat. Email us your questions about the library and its resources at or chat with us by going to

You can learn more about BRCC Libraries' online resources through our LibGuides:

The librarians are aware that many students are looking for ways to access their textbooks while campus is closed and the library's reserve copies are inaccessible. Many textbooks are available for free online until May 25 through a company called RedShelf. Students can create an account through RedShelf Responds to borrow up to 7 free eBooks online through May 25. The librarians are also actively identifying other free textbook sources for students. If you cannot access your textbooks, please email and let us know which books you are looking for.

If you have a book checked out from the BRCC Library (or if you've checked out another item): the due date has been pushed back to May 25, and you will not be charged a fine. Please don't worry about returning the item by the original due date. You can return it later, when our building reopens. Please do not attempt to return items while the building is closed.

Please take care and we'll look forward to hearing from you online and seeing you again when the library reopens!

Thank you,

Magnolia Library Staff
