Textbook Lending Library

The David P. Bianco Textbook Lending Library is a Ventura College Foundation textbook program where students can check out textbooks to use for an entire semester, at no cost to them. As resources are limited, these textbooks are checked out on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may also check the library online Library catalog OneSearch, to see if the library has their text in the collection.

Books in this collection have the notation "Lending Library" as the shelf location.   Even after semester requests have been filled, oftentimes textbooks remain. Contact the VC Library at 805-289-6482 or at any time during the semester to see what is available for you.
