Book Loan Program 

The Fall 2015 Online Book Reservation Form will re-open for the Spring 2016 Semester in January.

On this form, you will be asked to provide your contact information, the books you would like to borrow, and when you would like to pick the books up.  The list of available books on the form is a "live" inventory and will change based upon previous students' requests.  Additional books may be added to the inventory throughout the week, so please check back often if the book you need is not listed.

Guideline for borrowing text books 

    • First come, first served
    • Use the online reservation form
    • Failure to return borrowed text books by the stated deadline will result in a hold being placed on your St. Philip’s College account, which will prevent you from registering for the following semester or receiving your St. Philip’s College academic transcript.

Steps to borrow a book 

    • Using your class schedule, determine the books needed for the semester
    • Obtain the book title, the author, the edition of the book, and the ISBN number

    • Return borrowed text book(s) no later than Friday, December 18th
