Military & Veterans Programs (MVP) Lending Library

We will take your used books and lend them to other military-connected students in need. Textbooks are free to check out every semester and must be returned the week after finals.

Our library has been stocked by donations from the Pikes Peak State campus community. You can help us develop our library by donating your old textbooks. The larger the collection, the more military affiliated students we can help. If you would like to donate, bring your old textbooks to MVP (C222) anytime during business hours.

If you are in need of a book, please follow the steps below:

  1. Register for a new account here at Sign Up. Please use your first and last name when you register. 
  2. Receive verification email and verify the email address.
  3. Log into https://librarika.com/ using a new account.
  4. Click on "Request Member Access" button at My Libraries section.
  5. Enter full URL of the library, https://mvplendinglibrary.librarika.com, and submit the request.

After creating your account you will be able to browse our selection of books. Please note, placing a reservation request does not confirm availability. Once you request the book, we will email you whether your book(s) are or are not available to be picked up within 2 business days. 

If you have used the Lending Library before and already have an account, please skip the steps listed above and log in HERE.

Books are first come, first served. We cannot ship books to students. You must be able to pick them up in person at the Centennial Campus (C222). If you do not pick up your book(s) within 2 business days of notification, we will issue them to the next student in the queue.
