Returning Books & Media to Library

Library materials may be returned to the book drop, located to the left of the Pearsall Library Main entrance. Students, faculty, and staff who are no longer on campus can return materials in August when they arrive for the fall semester. If you are not planning to return to campus or are graduating in the spring, you can mail items to Pearsall Library, 3400 N. Wesleyan Blvd., Rocky Mount, NC 27804.

Overdue fines will not be accrued during this time and fines will be waived if you do return items. Contact us at (252) 985-5350 or reference@ncwc.edu.

Course Reserves

The library maintains course reserves to make sure heavily used resources are available for students when they need them. Library materials or faculty-owned materials, including books and audiovisual materials, may be placed on reserve. Copyright law does not permit the library to place photocopies of material that is protected by copyright on reserve. Reserve items may be designated strict reserve (3 hour circulation period for use in the library), 1-day, 3-day, or 1-week reserve.

Contact Grace Wallace to place items on reserve.

To check out reserve items, visit the circulation desk and ask for them. They are organized by the name of the instructor and the course number.
