Need to borrow a textbook? If you live in the Houston Area, you can borrow any of the following textbooks free of charge for a one month period. Textbooks have been previously used and kindly donated by other students, but are still in good condition. If you have any, questions, reach out to us by filling out the form on the "Contact Us" page and you will receive an email from us within 24 hours. Because of COVID-19, we will be taking safety precautions by disinfecting all textbooks prior to loaning them out.
Terms of Service:
Do not write inside the book. You may photocopy pages to work on or you may work in a separate notebook, but If any serious damage is done to the books, a damage fee will have to be payed to replace the book. Once you receive your book, the rental period lasts for one month, then you must return your book to where it was picked up from on or before your due date. You will receive an email from INSPO a week before your rental period ends to remind you to return your book. Although there will not be a late fee, it is important that we keep the integrity of the library by ensuring that all books are returned in time and ready for the next user. By checking out a book, you are agreeing to the terms of service provided.
