Poinciana Campus Library

We are here to promote academic integrity, scholarly research, and inclusive access of information for all of Valencia College. Whether we work together remotely, or in-person, we promise to do our best to guide you on your academic journey.  For updates on college closures due to COVID-19, see the following Valencia website for details: Monitoring the Coronavirus.

Valencia College libraries will open their buildings for Fall 2021 in Phase 4 of the reopening plan. The staff has worked hard to provide a distanced environment in library spaces. We will also continue to provide remote library services. Please return any borrowed materials and equipment. All fees and fines for library materials due during the closure will be waived.

For information on how to access library resources remotely, visit the Poinciana Library Quick Start Guide.

The library has a new interface for the library catalog.  Click here to search the library.
