Dear CCSF Student:

As students, you know we all pay big bucks for our textbooks. But did you know you can borrow them for free? The Associated Students Bookloan Program loans out 3,000+ textbooks each semester. You can borrow 2 textbooks and they are yours until the last day of class in the same Semester. We wanted to let you know about our up coming loaning periods, volunteer opportunities and how to get a Bookloan!

Bookloan is a FREE program but it is not a right! This privilege is brought to you by the $5 Student Activity fee. Please pay this voluntary fee when registering for classes. The fee pays for Bookloan and other Associated Students groups from Club of Brazil to Philosophy Club. Bookloan cannot operate without your support!

We also accept donations of current textbooks for City College or gently used novels, textbooks, and other books so that we may recycle them for money to buy new textbooks. Remember, we are student run, student supported and can't afford to buy every textbook needed. Can you donate one textbook this Semester?

The Bookloan is open to students all semester, but we have limited supplies, so come early!

Volunteer orientation at 12:00pm on Wednesday, August 8. We are student run and supported. Bookloan cannot operate without volunteers. Special benefits include your first pick of 2 textbooks from our library. RSVP to or drop in!
