College Bound?

by Nancy M

ugaIt’s September and the halls of academia await. You’ve done everything you can to prepare—you have completed mountains of homework, passed exams, worked on becoming a well-rounded student, wrote essays and submitted applications. Now, with graduation and summer vacation behind you, you are about to embark upon your college days. Starting this new chapter in your life can be a little nerve-wracking, especially if you are leaving home for the first time. But if you have some time before college starts, pick up the following books from the Library. They can help prepare you for your first roommate experience, campus life, academic life and more.

Books for GA college students

by Heather O

If you are enrolled in one of the 34 participating Georgia colleges, you may be able to order books online from any college in the state. Galileo offers a universal catalog for libraries in the University System of Georgia, with the GIL Universal Catalog students can request books from other university libraries in Georgia, renew their books, and manage their library accounts.

If you are a student and still can’t find your book outside of both the Georgia university system and Dekalb County Public Libraries, we offer inter-library loan through your local branches.
