The library has some textbooks on reserve, usually for heavily-enrolled courses. See the Books on Reserve link below or call the circulation desk at 743-2260 to talk to a staff member.

Reserve items must be used in the library, for up to two hours. Obtain reserve books at the Circulation Desk, using a SUNY Adirondack ID card.

We usually have one copy per course. 

Students are generally expected to obtain their own textbooks as a basic requirement for a course. And yes, they can be expensive!

Occasionally, a required book might be a classic novel or other book that the library has in its circulating collection. Search it in the Start Your Research Here box on the library's home page, linked below. Students can borrow circulating books for a month. 

If you are done with a textbook and would like to donate it to the library instead of selling it back, please talk to a librarian. Students taking that course later will thank you.
