Book Lending

Textbooks are Expensive! Let us help.

Books for Bulldogs is a free service that allows currently enrolled AHC students to borrow textbooks for an entire semester. To borrow books for a whole semester, students must register online.

SUMMER 2020 BOOK REQUEST SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!

The summer 2020 book request deadline was June 3rd. Due to the COVID 19 stay-at-home order, for everyone's safety, books will be mailed to the mailing address provided in the book request submission form. Because textbook supply is limited, there is no guarantee that requested textbooks will be available.

Rules and Guidelines:

  • Currently enrolled AHC students are eligible to borrow textbooks.
  • Two (2) textbook limit per student. Although students can borrow up to two books, students should list their top five requests in order of priority when they make their appointment.  
  • There is no guarantee that requested textbooks will be available, as textbook supply is limited.
  • The program does not carry access codes or course packets.
  • All students must submit an online request and provide a mailing address for shipping.
