Textbook Lending Library

The Textbook Lending Library is managed through the library on the Lisle main campus. Students may check out up to two available textbooks from the lower level of the library for one semester. If a student requires more than two textbooks, approval is required through the Academic & Career Enrichment Center (ACE) by emailing
To check out textbooks through the lending library, please refer to the following guidelines:
  • Print a copy of your entire textbook list and other instructional materials needed and use this to check the library’s webpage.
  • Go to and select the “Books & Videos” tab and type in the book ISBN number.
  • If your book is listed as available, check the edition (some new editions have very little changes, but ask your professor if you can use an older edition if that is the only one available).
  • Visit  to set up a contactless pick-up of your book.  There is a limit of two books through the Lending Library; however, if you need more than two (and they are available in the Lending Library) email for approval. 
Students must first try verifying if book(s) are available to checkout in the library.
For more information, please contact the library at or call (630) 829-6050.
