Books for food program:The Books For Food program was created to assist students in acquiring course material at a significantly reduced cost. Students bring in cans of food to receive their textbooks and calculators. We donate the food to Second Harvest Foodbank. This semester is no different! We also have over 400 calculators for the Calculators For Food program (Ti-84, Ti-84 Plus), available to all students.
Please check the Books For Food website and see if your course(s) are supported by our program. Our software system is in transition and the amounts/titles might not be completely accurate – we’ve added a considerable amount of materials during Winter.
The students need to bring their student ID card, their class schedule to show they are enrolled in the course(s), and 10 cans per course and/or calculator. The student receive the books and/or calculator and has it for the entire semester. The return date is the last day of the semester.
The library opens its doors at 8:00 AM the first day of class (Monday, 01/26); we’re open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM, Fridays 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM, and Saturdays 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM. The books and calculators are first come, first serve, so encourage your students to come as soon as they can!

Things to do to get a head start :
1. Ready over Syllabus : You can download a printable version of the Syllabus (pdf.).
2. Read over the Lab Safety Sheet : You can download a printable version of the Safety Sheet (pdf.)
3. Take the Syllabus Quiz : Download the quiz (Syllabus Quiz pdf.) and answer the questions on a scantron form after reading the syllabus. You will be turning in the scantron answers during lab the second week of school (Feb. 6th)
4. Take the REVIEW BIOLOGY Test (Download Review Test ): If you do not feel comfortable with the material covered you can review that material in you Anatomy textbook or in a General Biology Text. This quiz is designed to allow you to judge whether you have a basic knowledge of general biology. If the quiz seems difficult or the terms seem completely foreign, I would suggest retaking a general biology course BEFORE attempting Anatomy. Make sure you are setting yourself up for success!

Since the prices of texts books is definitely a concern you
may want to look into purchasing textbooks from a less
