Central Penn College's Library participates in Access PA, which is a statewide catalog containing the collections of over 2,000 Pennsylvania institutions including public libraries, school libraries, and academic (college and university) libraries. It currently contains over 8 million items. It is coordinated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
In exchange for lending our materials to those libraries, we can borrow materials from most of the other libraries in the state--that includes Penn State and Temple University's libraries, among others, and includes public libraries which tend to have larger collections of 'fun' reading.
Search the Access PA catalog via the link above to find books for both educational and personal use. See below for how to request that we borrow those books for you.
Use the Book and Article Request Form to request books you find somewhere other than the library's Online Catalog, such as in Access PA, Amazon, or elsewhere.
Please provide as much information as possible about the book on the form. You can provide an email address other than your school address if you prefer.
Here is an example of the Book section of the form, filled out with the needed information. In this example, "Other Library" is chosen, and "Amazon" listed for 'Which Library?'
