Here’s how it works. Simply enroll in one of these sections and a librarian will visit your class on the first day of instruction to provide you with an authorization form and go over program details. All you have to do is take the signed authorization form to the Kentfield Library Circulation Desk to check out your copy of the textbook. Terms and conditions apply, so check with the library staff if you have any questions or concerns. You may reach our friendly librarians by email at or by telephone at (415) 485-9475.
