BCC Library is now open to BCC students/faculty/staff. Our new hours are: Mondays-Thursdays, 7:30-11:30am and 1:30-5:30pm; Fridays, 8:00-11:30am and 1:30-3:00pm.
Masks are required! And space is limited, due to NC Phase 3 guidelines; so reservations are recommended. Please use our new system to book your library visit.

BCC Library staff has to reconcile library users needing quiet with those seeking socialization--both legitimate functions of a library--and, to do this effectively, we must be creative and flexible with our space usage. In an effort to meet the needs of all users, we have established quiet time hours each semester, a program called Silent SWIM.
Starting the second full week of each semester and lasting until the final day of classes, quiet time hours occur twice daily, Monday through Thursday, in BCC Library:
Please note, quiet time hours are suspended during library and ACE Lab events, and when BCC is operating on the "business hours" schedule.
To view the current schedule, please visit the library events calendar.
