Lending Library Reminders!

Lending Library--New Procedures!

Have you been lucky enough to participate in the lending library?  If so, pay CLOSE attention!  The procedures for borrowing books has changed!

Beginning July 1st, the Teacher Education Program will be taking over the Lending Library from the Title V Co-op grant. Effective IMMEDIATELY, there will be NO more books lent out for the Summer 2011 term.

All books currently checked out from the Lending Library MUST be returned to the TEP Office no later than 4:00pm on August 12th. Students who do not return books to the TEP Office by 4:00pm on August 12th will NOT be permitted to borrow out books for the Fall 2011 term, no exceptions.

New books for the Fall 2011 term will be lent out during the week of August 16 - August 19 ONLY between 8:00am - 4:00pm. Students may borrow books for up to two courses. The TEP Office will determine which books will be lent out to students based on the supply of books in the Lending Library. TEP does NOT guarantee any books for our students nor do we guarantee students will receive the maximum two courses worth of books allowed, this will be determined by the supply of books in the Lending Library.
