Child Development Book Loan Program

Students enrolled in Child Development and Education courses
may request to borrow a textbook for the duration of the course. 

Many CDE courses are Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC), which means the materials are free and will be provided within the Canvas course.   Please check the Class Schedule and/or My Site for textbook information.    

If you need a textbook, books are loaned on a first-come, first-served basis. The textbook may be borrowed for the duration of the course. 

To request a textbook loan for 2nd eight-week courses for Spring 2021, please fill out the Google Form located here by March 19, 2021. Be sure to correctly fill out all sections on the form in order to be considered.  Please fill out one form for each book requested. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kristen McCartney, Associate Faculty. 

Textbook pickup will occur on  Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm on Saddleback Campus drive, located near the Bus Circle, College Drive Entrance (Near Medical Center Road).

You will receive confirmation of the book loan, by the email provided on the form, before the pickup date.
