Lisle Campus

The Library has a selection of donated textbooks that are available on a first-come, first-served basis that are located across from the Circulation Desk (Kindlon Lower Level). Also, some current textbooks are held on reserve at the Circulation Desk, but the selection is limited. The Library does not collect current textbooks. Some titles may be available from other libraries through I-Share, but many of the most current textbooks cannot be borrowed.

Students in financial need may qualify for the Fr. Kevin J. Sheeran, O.S.B. Textbook Program, which was created to help students in need meet the cost of required texts for classes in which they are enrolled. Program awards are based upon eligibility criteria and supplement students’ existing financial aid resources. Funding is limited. For additional information and to find out if you qualify to apply, please stop by the Academic and Career Enrichment Center (ACE) in Goodwin Hall 215.

You can purchase or rent current textbooks from the Barnes & Noble bookstore on the Lisle campus.
