Overdue Library Books - It’s that time of year when we’re trying to get everything back to the library and clear student records for the semester!

Names of students who still have very late overdues will be turned over to administration starting Tuesday 1/19. Please check your student’s account by visiting the Cobb Library online catalog at Click on the “My Account” tab and enter your student’s ID number and 8-digit birthday to see items out.

If the book is truly lost, please pay for replacement online at Mackin’s, as we are not able to accept donated books or take payments in the library. Contact Ms. Meeks in the library regarding book replacement cost of your student's books at
