MVP's Lending Library

We will take your used books and lend them to other military-connected students in need. Textbooks are free to check out every semester and must be returned the week after finals.

Our library has been stocked 100% by donations from the PPCC campus community. You can help us develop our library by donating your old textbooks. The larger the collection the more veterans and dependents we can help. If you would like to donate, bring your old textbooks to MVP (C222) at any of our locations anytime during business hours.

If you are in need of a book, please follow the steps below:

  • Request access.
  • Once we receive your request, we will send you a link to sign up for our online library powered by Librarika where you can view all the available books and place a reservation request.
  • Once you request the book, we will email you whether your book(s) are or are not available to be picked up within 2 business days.

Books are first come, first served. Placing a reservation request does not confirm availability. We cannot ship books to students. You must be able to pick them up in person at the Centennial Campus (C222). If you do not pick up your book(s) within 2 business days of notification, we will issue them to the next student in the queue. 

You can place reservation requests for summer now, however they will not be processed until May 17th.

If you have any questions, please email svo@ppcc.edu
