Borrow Textbooks — For Free!
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 is student-created and operated and loans out thousands of textbooks each semester.
How the Bookloan Program Works
At the start of the semester, we have a loaning period when books are loaned on a first-come, first-served basis. All students are allowed to borrow two textbooks that are yours until the last day of class in the same semester. All books must be returned to Bookloan before the final day of the Semester in which the book was borrowed.
How to Return Textbooks
The AS Bookloan Program is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have overdue books from any semester, including Spring 2020, you may return them to the Ocean Campus Bookstore at the following times:
- Mondays: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
- Tuesdays: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
- Wednesdays: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
- Thursdays: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
- Fridays: Closed
If you cannot come to campus during these times you may also place your books in our 24 hour drop box, which is located on the top floor of the Student Union by the main building entrance. If you would like to mail them back to campus please contact us at email@example.com for instructions.
Check our catalog of titles to ensure we carry the book you want. Please note that this list is not comprehensive — we purchase new books throughout the semester. We do not carry novels, access codes, or loose-leaf books. For English and other courses, visit your campus library or local public library to borrow novels used in your class. We also recommend visiting your campus library for textbooks on reserve.
