eBooks as Textbooks at IRSC: eBooks & eAudiobooks from Our Public Library Partners

Reciprocal Borrowing for IRSC Students and Employees

Did you know that all current IRSC students and employees are eligible to get a free library card from our public library partner systems regardless of their county of residence? Bring your photo ID and student or employee ID to a public library branch or one of our joint-use locations (Brackett Library on Mueller Campus, Pruiitt Campus Library on Pruitt Campus, or Morgade Library on Chastain Campus) to apply for a card.

The public library partner systems have wonderful eBook and eAudiobook collections for all ages as well as some unique databases (Consumer Reports, Mango Languages, etc.).
