In order to borrow material from the LSSC Libraries, you must have a Library Card. These cards are available at any campus library during regular hours. Cards are issued free of charge to any current LSSC student, faculty or staff member. The library card identifies the holder as a Lake-Sumter State College student, faculty or staff member and entitles them to local area business discounts.
You do not need a card in order to log on to online resources. Simply use your X-ID as your Borrower ID and your six-digit birth date as the PIN.
Cardholders are responsible for all materials checked out on their cards. Address and phone number changes should be reported to the library. Lost or stolen cards should be reported as soon as possible.
Lake-Sumter Students, Faculty & Staff:
LSSC students, faculty and staff can obtain a library card at any campus library. Proof of fee payment and/or another form of photo ID will be required. Distance learners may request a card by phone (352-365-3563) or by e-mail and it will be mailed.
Residents of Lake County or Sumter County who are not currently registered LSSC students may present a valid Lake County Library System library card or Sumter County Library System library card and a Florida operator’s driver’s license and receive borrower’s privileges at no charge. The card is valid for one year and is renewable by presenting a Lake or Sumter County library card.
Out-of-county residents and Lake and Sumter residents who do not have a valid county library card may purchase an annual community borrower's library card for $7.50. A Florida operator’s driver’s license or state ID card must be presented.
Students who are currently enrolled at any other public Florida college or university will be issued an LSSC library card upon presentation of a valid photo ID card from their home institution or a non-photo library card supported by other photo ID.
