Textbook Lending Library

We are pleased to provide support to students in obtaining required textbooks that due to cost would not otherwise be able to purchase the books on their own. In order to receive textbook assistance, students must demonstrate financial hardship and must have exhausted all other forms of financial aid available to them. This includes all forms of loans (subsidized and unsubsidized). We give the highest priority to those with the highest financial need and have no other means or have already exhausted their financial aid options.

In order to participate in the Textbook Lending Library, students must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Must be currently enrolled with a minimum of 12 credits
  • Must be in financial hardship and have exhausted all forms of financial aid (including forms of loans, grants, work study, etc)
  • All requests are honored on a first come, first serve basis
  • Applications will be reviewed immediately on a rolling basis

Interested in donating? If you are a past or current student looking to donate your old textbooks, please contact Mark Beattie at

*Please upload the textbook request form in the lending library application below. At this time we are unable to purchase textbooks that only come in ebook format.

Lending Library Application

  • Max. file size: 195 MB.
  • By submitting this application you agree to the following:

    Return all borrowed books by the last day of finals week. I understand that by not returning the books the following semester, I will forfeit eligibility to participate in the book loan library while being a student at WSU Everett. I understand I will be responsible for reimbursing WSU Everett if textbooks are lost, stolen or damaged at the cost of replacing the book. I understand that it may take 5-7 days for a textbook to arrive if not currently available in the lending library.
