SMC Books

SMCs may check out a box of books to use for a book club with their floor. This guide explains how to find the SMC books and includes reviews of the books by SMCs and their book club members.

How do I check out a box of books?


  • Ask at the Circulation Desk for the container that you want. For example, SMC Box 1. The staff member will retrieve the box from a locked storage room on the Lower Level.
  • The SPU Library will check the containers out to individual SMCs. The container will be listed on the individual SMC’s library record.
  • Each container will be due after 84 days or the end of the quarter.
  • The individual books are the responsibility of the SMC. The SPU Library will not issue notices to individual students who signed out the books within the containers.
  • The SPU Library will issue an overdue notice to the SMC for the container.
