Semester Long Textbook Loans: We're Making it Happen.
We believe that education is a basic human right. Your support of the Cornell Lending Library can ensure that all have access to it.
Do you need textbooks for class? Check the lending library before ordering expensive books.
This new initiative provides free loans of textbooks to students challenged by high textbook prices. We are dedicated to improving the educational experience of low SES students by providing free semester long loans of textbooks in a lending library.

About the Durland Alternatives Library:
This small library is a bridge between Cornell and the regional library system. It's an independent Non-Profit organization, which means they do all kinds of things regular libraries can't – like running a prison correspondence program with over 4,000 members. www.prisonerexpress.org
