  • The GBCC Library
  • Other CCSNH Libraries (except for Concord)
  • The UNH Dimond Library (in person or via Interlibrary Loan)

Do you need a book or video that you couldn’t find in our catalog? We’ll try to get it for you.

Renewing and Returning Materials

To renew Library materials, please call us, email us [reference@ccsnh.edu] or come in on or before the due date.

When returning books, give items to Library staff or use the book drop to your left as you enter the Library. When the Library is closed, you may deposit materials in the book drop outside the Library doors.

Note: The NOOKs, iPads and laptops must always be returned directly to a Library staff member.

Overdue Fines

The Library charges .25 per day, per overdue item after a one day grace period. Please get a payment form from the Library and then pay all fines at One Stop.

All materials must be returned and all fines paid before the end of a semester. Otherwise, a hold will be placed on your account and you will not be able to register for courses, get transcripts or graduate.
