Mondays through Friday's  7:45am to 4:00pm



No passes are needed before school, lunch or after school.


During extended periods, only two students per class should be issued a library pass in order to preserve the academic nature of the period.



Baltimore City College Library strives to emulate a college library environment while recognizing the paradox of access. To cultivate this environment and maximize access, students should:

  • refrain from eating or drinking

  • engage quietly in collaborative work/academic conversation

  • keep music on portable devices at an acceptable minimum

  • respect shared resources, equipment, and furniture
