Blind Date with a Book (Feb. 12-16, 2018)

Looking to heat things up this winter? Are you craving a little intrigue, mystery, action, thrills or romance? Visit the Library between February 12 to 16 to go on "blind date" with a book.

Our Doon and Cambridge locations will feature a display of pink and red wrapped books - each containing a synopsis of what it's about without giving away the title, author or cover. You then decide which book you would like to checkout for a "date".

Winter 2018 Info for New & Returning Students

Welcome! The following services are available from your Library:

Library PIN
Your Library PIN = the last 4 digits of your Conestoga Student/Staff ID number. Your PIN is used for accessing the Library's hundreds of thousands of eBook titles, articles and online videos anytime, anywhere from off-campus. It remains valid as long as you are enrolled or employed at Conestoga.

ONE Card
For current full-time and some part-time students, your ONE Card is your Library card. You will be asked for this when borrowing books or videos from our collection. For part-time students, we will use your preexisting Conestoga ID card as your Library card or create a card for you.

Online Room Bookings
Meeting rooms for group work can be booked online for both our Doon and Cambridge Library locations.

Printing, Photocopying & Scanning
The Library provides access to printers, copiers and scanners. Ask us or one of our Tech Tutors for assistance.
