The Student Government Association and the Student Library Advisory Council at HCC Central has collected over 474 textbooks available for ANY student, regardless of the HCC campus you attend, to check out for the entire semester.  It’s a first come, first serve program as we do not promise to have every textbook.  All of the textbooks come from student donations. These are students who decided to contribute to a good cause versus selling their books back to the bookstore for a couple of bucks.  We encourage you to donate your textbook to this initiative so that other students can benefit by saving money and taking a stand against publishers who continue to increase textbook costs. If you would like to get involve, please tell other students about this program, donate your textbook and/or get involved with our movement. You can join us by contacting, Erica Hubbard ay
