Invest in Access: Growing the UCAP Lending Library
The average student will spend over $836 in textbooks in a year. To afford this expense, some will be forced to choose between a textbook or life essentials such as food, gas or rent.
The NKU UCAP Lending Library was created so our students never have to choose between meals or a book. We don't want students to jeopardize their grades because they decided to skip out on getting their textbooks because of the price.
Our Lending Library houses over 800 books and supports approx. 300 students per semester. NKU students save thousands of dollars by borrowing books from our library. But trends in classrooms are shifting the need from not only textbooks but also access codes for online reading and homework materials. These access codes can cost upwards of $250 and are one-time use only. We hope to offer the ability to provide access codes for students in need while also continuing to offer updated textbooks. And we need your help!
