Lethbridge College Faculty Association News and Updates

A request from the Students Association.

The Lethbridge College Students' Association is launching a new project, and asking for your help.

At the last LCFA General Meeting, the LCSA did a presentation on their new project centered around assisting students facing financial hardship by lending them textbooks.  The project is called "Borrow a Textbook".

The LCSA has stated the following:

The general idea of the project:  This pilot project called Borrow a Textbook, will be implemented January 2019 (winter semester). These textbook will be a selection from our various required course textbooks. These textbooks will be on library shelves and monitored by the librarian. The student will be required to present an up to date college ID which will give three hours with the book on loan free to students.

The project goal:  This Borrow a Textbook project in our library on campus will help students who are struggling financially and cannot afford to buy their required textbook(s). This will help the student to gain confidence in getting better grades due to availability of such resource. This will also help to better our student's mental health not having to worry or stress about their affordability or resources while on campus.

If you are interested in assisting with this project please drop off any textbooks you may have listed in the link below; to the Student Association, by October 31st, 2018.  If you would like further details about the Borrow a Textbook program please contact Nicholas Coley (nicholas.coley@lethbridgecollege.ca) the LCSA President, and/or click the link below.
