Your textbooks are at the library!

Borrow your textbooks FREE!

Borrow any required textbook for up to 3 hours…

Next time you need to borrow a textbook for class, head to the Lynn Library, go to the Information Desk and take advantage of our Textbook Collection.

The Library offers all required textbooks for a three-hour rental. So whether you haven’t gotten your book yet or you just left it at home, we’ve got you covered.

To borrow a textbook, just bring your valid Lynn ID to the circulation desk. Please note: Textbooks that aren’t returned within the three-hour rental period will incur a $5 late fee per hour, up to $100. If you lose or keep your borrowed textbook, you’ll be charged the full cost of the book, a $50 replacement fee and whatever late fees have accrued.

Ready to borrow a textbook? Go to the library’s information desk or visit our website at lynn.edu/library and SEARCH Textbook Reserves to browse our list!

iPad Pro Tips & Tricks

Helpful tips for your brand new iPad Pro…iPad Pro

SCREEN REAL ESTATE

  • Multitasking on your iPad. In your first app, to use split view mode, place your finger on the right edge of the iPad Pro screen and swipe left. Continue swiping and adjust to your liking. You can work on both screens at the same time (i.e. play videos while you work). (Joseph M., Freshman)

NOTETAKING IS MY JAM

  • For better note taking use the Apps @ Work and download Notability. (Joseph Martin, Freshman)
  • Take notes on Pages with your keyboard. Open Pages > Template notes and start writing. (Kat Milan, Freshman)
  • In the Microsoft Word app > open a blank document > tap the draw tab and use your iPad Pro Pencil to take notes. (Karlisha Morales, Freshman)

HIGHLIGHTING iBOOK GURU

GROWN-UP COLORING IS HERE
