Catalog/Book Search

FCC's Learning Resource Center is a member of the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries of Illinois (CARLI).  You can search via the Catalog Search tab above to see what is available for checkout not only from Frontier's LRC, but also from the libraries at Olney Central College, Lincoln Trail College, and Wabash Valley College.  If you see something available at another library, arrangements can be made for the resource to be transferred to FCC (digital or hard copy).

Digital Collections

The CARLI Digital Collections website provides college-related materials for your viewing.  Click here to visit the site, which includes footage of FCC graduation ceremonies and more.

Library Cards

Use your library card to check out books, magazines, and DVDs! Your card may also be used for several services we offer to students and the public. A replacement card is $3.00.  Complete the application form in-person at our circulation desk, or download the PDF below.  Individuals under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian's signature.

Students - You will receive a free library card number with your student ID.  The library card number is activated at no cost when you complete an application in the LRC (this is typically filled out during New Student Orientation).

Public - Library cards are free and available to anyone living in the Illinois Eastern Community Colleges district.  Visit our website to see if you live within the IECC district.  You will need a driver's license or photo ID, as well as proof of residence, to receive your free library card.
