Book Collection

  • The library contains over 42,000 books divided into two main collections:
    • Circulating books may be borrowed for a period of two weeks with renewal options.
    • Reference books (dictionaries, encyclopedias, directories, etc.) may not leave the library.
  • The contents of all of our collections are accessible through our online catalog.
  • No overdue fines are charged for materials returned after their due date. However, failure to return library materials will result in blocking your ability to register for future classes, and you are held responsible for any lost items.
  • Instructors sometimes place books or articles on “Reserve.” These items are kept behind the Circulation Desk and usually are only available for use in the Library.



  • Periodicals are newspapers, magazines, journals, newsletters, etc.
  • Currently we carry 239 subscriptions (this does not include online titles).
  • You may browse the periodical collection, but the most effective way to find articles on a particular subject is by using a periodical index. We have many to choose from including the New York Times Index, Readers’ Guide to Periodical Literature, and NC Live.
  • Periodicals do not circulate; however, there are copiers available if you need copies. The charge is 10 cents per page.


Blynn Holocaust Collection

  • The Blynn Holocaust Collection is a repository of materials dealing with the 20th century destruction of the European Jews.
  • The collection consists of almost 400 resources including books, DVDs, videos and a unique collection of Holocaust testimonies of survivors who have called North Carolina home.
  • The collection is housed in the Blynn Holocaust Collection room, established in October 2001, in the Learning Center of Ardmore Hall.
  • As a special collection of the Forsyth Tech Library, it is intended to meet the needs of students and others from the community who have an interest in learning more about the Holocaust.
  • The collection also serves to facilitate to the greatest extent possible the integration of lessons to be learned from the study of the Holocaust into all academic areas of the college.
  • Materials of the Holocaust Collection are in large part made possible through the donations of Mr. Guy M. Blynn and have been selected with the aim of raising awareness of the Holocaust and its consequences.
