ESOL Course Reserves

ESL textbook book cover.ESOL Course Reserves are free, short term loans of textbooks and other course materials used in your ESOL classes. CCC Library has textbooks and workbooks for many of your ESOL classes. We have multiple copies of each textbook and workbook. This collection is located on the Oregon City Campus in the Dye Learning Center, at the Circulation Services desk.

  • Print textbooks can be checked out for 5 hours. These items cannot leave the Dye Learning Center. You are welcome to take them with you to class (since your classes meet in the Dye Learning Center). Please talk to a librarian if your ESOL class does not meet in the Dye Learning Center.
  • Online chapters of textbooks: Request CCC Library email a scanned PDF of a textbook chapter to you by using the "Request one textbook chapter" form below.
