Lending Library

Current First Coast FCC members have access to our free Lending Library!

Our books and videos are available to be checked out for a two-week period through our Volunteer Librarian, available at FCFCCChair@gmail.com.

If you need a selection for longer, please renew as needed. Access to your selections will be either through mail or in person at one of our functions. Unfortunately, we cannot bring our entire library to meetings, so please make prior arrangements to retrieve or return your selections. Late fees are $1 per week, lost or unreturnable items will be charged at current replacement cost.

If you’d like to donate videos, books, or other materials to our library, please contact us.

Thanks, and enjoy our library!
