Local Libraries

The Redding area is home to three other libraries accessible to Simpson students. These are:

  • Shasta Bible College
  • Shasta College
  • Shasta Public Library

Each institution requires you to maintain an account in order to borrow items. The Shasta College and Shasta Public Libraries require confirmation of a local address before issuing an account. Those 18 or older must bring a document with a local address such as a check stub or credit card statement. An adult with a local address must accompany students under 18. You will also be asked to present a photo ID. Library staff at Shasta Bible College may require you to present your Simpson ID card before opening an account for you.
