About Your SJC Library


Your SJC Library began in the north wing of the current administration building.  In 1968 bond sales provided the resources to build the current library.  In 1982 the library was dedicated to Milo P. Johnson a year following his retirement.  Mr. Johnson served as Mt. San Jacinto College President from 1963-1981. 

From these humble beginnings your SJC library now holds a broad collection of books, other print materials, offers access to thousands of e-books, e-journals and streaming videos.

Along with these resources, your SJC library offers individual research assistance and group orientations, in addition to providing access to 29 dedicated student computers, WIFI, and study space.
