Thank you for your interest in the Textbook Lending Program. To see if we have any of your course required textbooks, search by keyword, title, or subject followed by "textbook lending" in our library catalog.

In addition to textbooks, we also have calculators! We have TI-84 graphing and TI-34 scientific models available for semester-length loan.

How to Get Your Textbook

Please ask at the Circulation Desk if you need any help finding a textbook or calculator. If we do not have a book in the collection, we may have a copy on Reserve for in-library use.

We offer Hold Pickup for our Textbook Lending materials! Place a request through the library catalog. Once your item is ready you will receive a notice with important pickup information. We have step-by-step guides and videos of the process on our Library Guide for Students.

These textbooks check out only for the semester; they cannot be checked out ahead of time for the next semester. Please note that we will close hold requests for these items during the final 2 weeks of each semester.

A few notes:

  • To borrow from the Textbook Lending Program, you must be currently enrolled in the course.

  • If you would like to donate to the Textbook Lending Program, thank you! You can check in with anyone in the Circulation Department for more information.
