Special Event for Laptop and Library Book Checkout: Oct. 13-14

Miramar College Student Laptop and Print Book Check Out/In Event - October 13-14, 2020

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, San Diego Miramar College Library periodically hosts checkout services for laptops and print library books. Students will once again have the opportunity to borrow laptops and print books from the library.  To reserve your laptop or library books, please submit your request by Sunday, October 11, 2020. Here's how:

How to request materials

    • To search for student laptops type "Laptop Acer" in the search box, then click on "Laptop, Acer Aspire 5" or follow this direct link.
    • Follow this link to search for textbooks on reserve.
    • To search for other print materials, type your search terms in the search box and refine your results by limiting to Library: San Diego Miramar College.
  2. Click the title of the laptop or library book  you wish to request.

    • Only students who are enrolled in the current semester are able to place requests.
  5. Click "Request."
  6. Provide the following contact information in the comment field to assure that contact information is accurate within our library system:

    • Email address

Pick-up dates and hours of service

  • Tuesday, October 13 from 10:00am to 3:00pm
  • Wednesday, October 14 from 12:00pm to 6:00pm

Students must provide a valid photo ID (e.g., driver’s license and/or college ID) at time of pickup.

Additional information

  • There are no renewals for materials checked out during the Fall 2020 semester. Be sure to return library materials by their due dates in order to avoid accruing fines.
  • Students who were unable to pick-up their reserved laptop or book(s) from the previous event must re-submit their online reservation(s).
  • Please note that laptops are only available to students who are taking at least one class at Miramar College and who have no outstanding fees or holds on their accounts.
  • High school students currently taking Miramar College courses are ineligible for Laptop checkout services.
  • Checkout will be on a first-come-first-served basis while supplies last. Submitting a reservation online adds your name to a queue, however, it does not guaranteed you a laptop. Students who submit their laptop reservations online and receive an email confirmation from avmira@sdccd.edu will have priority. Walk-ins are allowed, however, we cannot be certain that laptops will be available.
  • Print books are available to students currently enrolled in at least one class at Miramar, City, or Mesa College, and who have no outstanding fees or holds at any campus.


The check in/out location will be at the northeast side of the L-LLRC building (L-Library Learning Resource Center). Signs will be posted to direct pedestrian traffic towards the location under the Miramar College teal canopies.

Just a reminder that the campus is still closed due to COVID-19. Students can temporarily park at the round-about at the end of Westview Parkway by the N-Administration building and walk to the L-LLRC Building. You can also park in Parking Lot 3 by the M-Business and Math building. Public transportation is accessible via Miramar College Transit Center. You might find it helpful to take a look at our campus map.

For questions regarding this process, please call (619) 388-7310 and leave a message, along with your contact info and college ID number. Staff will be checking messages (Mon.-Fri., 8:00am-5:00pm) and will do their best to respond by the next business day or sooner, when possible.  You may also email us at avmira@sdccd.edu.

The health of our students, faculty, staff and the community are our top priority.  For information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) specifically, please visit https://sdmiramar.edu/covid-info.
