Textbook Loaner Program
Who can rent books?
The Textbook Loaner Program is for all students!
How do I get started?
Bring your Student ID and a copy of your class schedule to the Student Life Office.
How much does it cost?
Books are Free of charge! (maximum of 3 textbooks)
When are books available?
Books are available Fall and Spring semester only. We do not offer during Summer term.
Availability is on a first come, first serve basis. Books may NOT be put on "hold" for a student under any circumstance. Students are required to show their LPC student identification in order to participate in the program. Book loan begins on the first day of classes.
What are the guidelines for the program?
When do I need to return my book?
All books must be returned directly to the LPC Library on or before the last day of finals. There is a late fee of $30 for books not returned by the deadline. Failure to return a book before the “No Grade of Record” (NGR) date of the following semester will result in the book being declared lost/stolen and students will be subject to a fee equivalent to the full price of the book. A hold will be placed on the student’s record until fees are paid. Holds prevent students from registering, dropping, or adding classes.
What happens if my book gets damaged?
Students will be charged a minimum damage fee of $15 for books that are damaged. This amount is subject to change depending upon the damage to the book. If the book is in disrepair, the student may be charged the full cost of the book. A hold may be placed on his/her record until payment for the damage is received.
What books are available?
A list of the books currently available through our program will be posted for each Spring and Fall semesters.
