ARE THE RISING COSTS OF TEXTBOOKS GETTING YOU DOWN?

The librarians at COM have a solution to help with some of the more expensive textbooks. By partnering with faculty, staff, administrators, and your ASCOM representatives, the Library is now able to offer a lending copy of the proper textbook at no cost to students who enroll in the courses listed below. 

Here's How it Works

Simply enroll in one of the courses below and you will be eligible to pick up a copy of the textbook at the beginning of the semester. If you drop the course before the end of the semester, please return the textbook as soon as possible. If you finish the course, you can return the book on or before the last day of the semester. Check this page for dates and locations for picking up and returning textbooks. Terms and conditions apply. If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach the library by email at LibraryCirc@marin.edu or by telephone at (415) 485-9656.

Returning LTP Textbooks

Spring semester LTP Textboooks are due May 27, 2022. Please return your LTP textbook to one of the library book drops on the Kentfield Campus. We have a bright blue book drop in Parking Lot 6 near Health Services. Here is a short video showing the location. If that book drop appears full, we have a silver book drop near the entrance to Fusselman Hall. Both book drops are open 24/7. You can also return your LTP textbook to Fusselman Hall at the times listed below. Click here for a Kentfield Campus Map
