    LFCC Library

    Dual-Enrollment Students have access to the resources of the LFCC Libraries. In order to access the online resources from off-campus, you will need to have a MyLFCC/Blackboard username and password, which you will be automatically assigned when you are processed into the LFCC system.  For questions about finding your MyLFCC/Blackboard username and password as a dual-enrollment student, please contact the library. For questions about how to use the resources of the library, check out the other pages on the Library at LFCC website or contact us.

    Dual enrollment students needing a book or an article that is not available online may request to have the materials sent to them. They will need an LFCC student ID card or library card before they can borrow any materials. To be issued a library card, library staff needs to talk to the student over the phone. Students can call Toll Free – 1-800-906-5322, ext. 7170, or direct at 540-868-7170. Circulating books can be mailed with postage-paid return packaging included for materials that need to be returned. Mailing is limited to course-related items and excludes items like popular fiction. Please contact the library to request print materials.
