In light of current closures, we will not be lending items from our collection until further notice. 

If you have a Library item to return, we ask that you keep it in your care until the Library re-opens.  

There will be no late fines for any Library item(s) in your possession.  Any outstanding fines will not accumulate. Having library materials checked out during this period will NOT impact your ability to register for next semester's classes or to graduate.

Find it online!  24/7 access to our online library resources including e-books, streaming videos and research databases.

Questions?  Email to contact Centennial Libraries staff.
