If you checked out interlibrary-loaned books (from other MeL or RaiderLoan libraries), the due dates are not GRCC’s to extend. When classes resume in person, please return those items to us as soon as possible and any interlibrary loan overdue fines will be waived.

Students often ask how much it costs to use GRCC’s books – and we want you to know that it is FREE! Yes, you have access to our traditional AND online Book and Media collections, as well as Databases chock-full of full-text periodical articles. There is no additional cost to access these materials in the Library, check them out, or access then from afar.
And, if we don’t own what you are looking for, chances are really great that we can find it, borrow it for you, and have it delivered FREE to GRCC. We’ll even return it for you!
And – you get to keep the ideas!
If you’re on campus and forgot some “essential something,” call the Library’s Circulation & Course Reserve Desk (616-234-3872) to see if they have one to lend you. The LLC has:
- Laptop computers for on-campus use;
- Cell phone chargers;
- USB battery packs;
- Student supply kit (scissors, pens, notecards, etc.);
- Whiteboard markers (to use on the LLC whiteboards); and,
- TI-84 graphing calculators.
Those items are in addition to the books, video, and textbooks typically found on Course Reserve.
Although the GRCC Library’s collection is primarily acquired to support the college’s curriculum, our staff realizes the value of providing students options for leisure reading. Breaks from studying and research are necessary and well-deserved, after all! The library offers students fiction and graphic novel reading selections – in print and ebook versions.
Come in today and check out the new graphic novel display that is on our Circulation desk, designed by our Evening Circulation Associate Toni Harrington. To browse more titles, head up to the second floor of the library where the graphic novel section is located at the beginning of the circulating collection.
