Book Loan

The Book Loan Program was created to help all students subsidize the costs of purchasing books. The program allows students to borrow two books during the semester free of charge and return the book(s) to the Frieson Black Cultural Center at the end of the semester. This program operates throughout the academic year.

TEXTBOOK DONATIONS – Now being accepted!

Students, faculty, and staff – please donate textbooks to the Frieson Black Cultural Center for the Book Loan Program through the Office of Multicultural Student Life.

Items may be turned in during operating hours – or call (865) 974-6861 for more information.
