About the program
The Quarterly Textbook Program provides students at Lake Tahoe Community College access
to textbooks purchased by Equity, EOPS, CARE, CalWORKs, VTEA/CTE, and Veteran programs. Students
affiliated with a student support program have priority access to quarterly textbooks from when they register for classes up through the first week
of classes. Quarterly textbooks become available to all LTCC students beginning the
second week of classes. Books are available on a first come, first served basis, while
supplies last. The Library is not able to purchase textbook access codes for individual
students. Please note: reserve copies of most textbooks are available for 2-hour usage
in the Library.
The fine print
By submitting a textbook request, students agree to the following Terms and Conditions as specified in the above link:
"Quarterly textbooks are the property of Lake Tahoe Community College. I agree to return borrowed materials to the library in good, reusable condition. No writing, highlighting, water damage, and/or physical damage to the cover, pages, or binding allowed.
Quarterly textbooks are due on or before the last Friday of each quarter, OR within 2 days of dropping a class. Overdue quarterly textbooks are subject to late fines.
If I return a damaged or unusable book, and/or if I lose a quarterly textbook, I agree to purchase a replacement copy of the current edition of the textbook.
I understand it is my responsibility to abide by these terms and conditions. Failure to do so may result in an academic hold and blocked registration of my student account.
If I have any questions about the Quarterly Textbook Program, it is my responsibility to contact my student support program (EOPS, CARE, CalWorks, Equity, Veterans, VTEA/CTE) and/or the Library (firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 232)."
