Special Populations Lending Library

Are you familiar with the Special Populations Lending Library?  If not, the Special Populations Lending Library is a resource to assist students who have exhausted their financial resources and have no other means of purchasing their textbooks and supplies.  These students must be classified as being a part of one of the special populations’ categories:

 

  • Single parents:  A single parent is an individual who is not married and who has custody of and is responsible for the care of one or more minor children, or who is currently pregnant.
  • Displace homemakers:  A displace homemaker is an individual who has been out of the job market for a period of time and now needs to return to work for financial reasons due to separation, divorce, disability, or death of a spouse.
  • Individuals who are Economically Disadvantage:  A credit-hour student who is a needs-based financial aid recipient of Pell or Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF).
  • Individuals in Non-traditional Programs:  The term “nontraditional programs” means occupations or fields of work, including careers in computer science, technology, and other current and emerging high skill occupations, for which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in each such occupation or field of work.
  • Individuals with Disabilities:  A “person with a disability” is anyone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as caring for one’s self, performing manual task, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working.
  • Individual with Limited English Proficiency:  A person whose native language is a language other than English.

 

The Lending Library does not offer books in General Education classes.  The books are occupation specific.  Please share this valuable resource to your students or refer them to Kashatriya Eason (J-105 Macon) or LaKeisha Nelson (A-132 Warner Robins).   Thank you so much for all that you do for our students.
