Can I borrow my textbooks from the Library?

It's worth a shot! Typically, the KU libraries don't have course textbooks. However, you can check the Library Catalog by going to and clicking the "Library Catalog" link under the "Find" section. Just remember to renew your check out to avoid fines. You also can rent selected books from the KU Bookstore.
