Textbook Affordability Project Update

As we near the end of our third week of classes, we'd like to give you an idea of how this new collection is working out, check out these facts:

  • Textbooks accounted for 25% of all circulation in the first 2.5 weeks of class
  • Undergraduates have done 76% of the textbook borrowing
  • The library has 381 textbooks in our collection—107 already owned and 274 newly purchased
  • The collection represents $58,675 in cost-savings to our students so far, based on text costs and number of uses to date

As soon as we get the spring textbook list, we’ll be identifying more textbooks to buy with our remaining funding.

If you have any questions about borrowing textbooks from the library please:
Call 239-590-7610 or text to 239-676-0840.
