The CalWORKs Support Services Lending Library is exclusively available to students receiving CalWORKs cash aid from the County. The library contains a limited number of books for some classes. These loaner books are available to CalWORKs students for a short period of time (usually a week or two at most); they are not replacements for books that students need to purchase.
Students must complete the following steps prior to requesting a loaner book from the Lending Library:
- Attend - or have recently attended - a CalWORKs Support Services Intake
- Meet - or recently have met - with a CalWORKs Counselor
- Provide a current Education Plan certified by a CalWORKs Counselor
- Submit a Textbook Funding Request statement - as prepared by the CalWORKs Support Services Office - to their Case Workers
The CalWORKs Support staff is happy to determine
whether the textbook you need is in our Lending Library. Please be prepared to provide a printout of your book list, and syllabus if applicable, at the CalWORKs Office.
