How Do I...


Get a library card?

The NSCC Library uses your public library card. If you do not have one, stop by the circulation desk in Lynn or Danvers and ask a library staff member for assistance.

Use the NSCC library on campus?

We are open to the public and accept NOBLE public library cards. If you do not have a public library card, please stop at the circulation desk and ask a library staff member for assistance. You may sign in as a guest to use a computer.

Request materials from the NSCC library?

You can request items online. You must have a current NOBLE public library card and a password. In the NOBLE Catalog click on "Log into my account" and follow the directions.

Return materials?

You can return materials borrowed from the NSCC libraries to any NOBLE library.
